The inspiration for this project is supposed to be ‘Consumeristic Cuisine’.
[ Note: A variety of different topics can be used for creating the same type of image making. The process followed here, is applicable to those topics as well ]
Before going any further, please understand what both the words mean.
Give a thought to what is food? What do we like / dislike eating? Is food becoming very manufactured in nature? Junk Food, Fast food etc. What are the ingredients of food? What are the ingredients of a fast consumerist life? What are the ingredients that we are consuming in our daily life? How some food is related to different aspects and different times of our life?
Using these questions as an inspiration, create a well prepared dish with unthought-of of ‘man’ufactured ingredients.
Cook up the image well in your head, visualize every detail before creating and crafting it. Identify the ‘foodness’ of the food you are making, reduce it graphically into simplistic forms that can be replaced with everyday materials and objects. The aim of this project is to surprise the viewers eye, time after time.
