Consumeristic Cuisine
Fake food made with found objects
 
'Don't we all just really try to fake it well' - Yancy Butler
 
This was a workshop conducted at Ecole Intuit Lab. It was an attempt at understanding some of the priciples that help make an illustration;
or an illusion. Using consumerism, food and its 'foodness' as breaking ground the students were made to 'cook' up a recipe in their heads. They finally crafted a fake-but-real looking dish, using everyday materials and objects. Here's what they made.
