Potential for this kind of project is to be partnering with community gardens, food bank, food justice advocy groups, farmers, markets, art centers and museum educational centers
The group of vessels were created to speak to the hunger issue many communities face. They are coined “Paradox in Rice” and represent the empty bowl, hunger as experienced by victims of drought or famine, yet the vessels are also full, as the vessel walls include the ghosted cyanotype images of rice. "Walk this Way", featuring the lexicon of sustainability in an outdoor installation had it's first appearance at this event. This was a collaboration with chef Liz Cross at Bradner Gardens, Seattle. Rice is the most common staple eaten in the world. Menu included sustainable local ingredients including heritage grain and rice and lentil appetizers. Admission funds and donations were raised for a local food bank in Rainier Valley, Seattle.
Materials included in the installation: rice paper, repurposed shirts, encaustic wax medium, cyanotype process, twine, paper and ink.
