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show the contrast between the constancy of what we really need and the torrent of devices and gadgets that quickly go out of date and are substituted with newer versions, all due to our consumer economy.
