Little Kitchen Situation (2013-2017)
This project explores the place of the meal through three series of works. Here are the first two of these; the third is in progress.
In 2014 I designed and built a scaled-down cardboard modular kitchen.
In this awkwardly small space I asked a young couple to act out various kitchen tasks such as making a meal, putting away groceries, and washing dishes. These works explore the layering of time and space and the interactions of the characters while the little kitchen becomes a third character that interacts with the couple and changes with our point of view in each images. The original little kitchen was damaged in 2015, so in 2017 I created miniature scale model of the original in archival materials.
