Mostly Edible

Mostly Edible, what we eat is extremely personal. Our likes and dislikes will vary from person to person. We often attach stories, and construct memories or emotional responses to particular foods.

This project manifested as a series of screen prints that illustrate a selection of treasured recipes and ingredients collected from a range of individuals of diverse backgrounds all living in London. A combination of their personal favourites and recipes handed down through families. This project explores our emotional connection with food and how we can relate to each other through the act of sharing.

Based on a gift economy or culture and modelled on the idea of exchange where valuables are not traded or sold, but given without an open agreement for immediate or future rewards. Which is contrasted with a market economy, where one exchanges goods or services for a set value. The idea that in a world of abundance giving can be its own reward. The sense of gratitude that can follow acts of generosity expressed through sharing.
