The series explores the timelessness of the food that nurture us
juxtaposed to consumer goods. Life is dependent on food; food
accompanies us from the beginning of our existence to the end,
be it of the human race or our individual lives. Despite it being so
fundamental to life as such, it has no real status as a metaphor of
continuity, it just exists as a necessity or a pleasure. By
juxtaposing everyday food that has accompanied human for
hundreds if not thousands of years to technology, I want to show
the contrast between the constancy of what we really need and the
torrent of devices and gadgets that quickly go out of date and are
substituted with newer versions, all due to our consumer
economy.
