Today's Meal Series

Concept behind the "Today's Meal" Series

Recently, there has been an eruption of controversies surrounding food safety, from GMO foods, additives and microplastics to pesticides, such as the lost court case surrounding the potential carcinogenic nature of agricultural giant Monsanto's herbicide, Roundup. Given such incidents, concern over one's food is certainly justified. However, unless you can be completely self-sufficient, there's no way to completely escape these uncertainties.
This work is an attempt to represent the opaque, black-box nature of food in the modern world. It consists of common foodstuff blended together into a paste and then shaped to resemble whipped cream. It thus becomes a dish that is impossible to identify— whether it be a hamburger, pasta, or anything else— and asserts that we already have no idea what we are eating.
