Photo Sale But Puzzles
Collapsing time into an ingestible item is a tangible form of magic minus any form of deception. I take photos of my meals to stretch this time out. To say thank you to the people that have provided it, to the decisions that were made before it reached our homes / places of eating and to make another object that I can hand to someone. I don’t often have time to cook full meals for myself. When I made these puzzles I wanted to hand the same amount of time and care in a similar form as its origin but if you leave it out it won’t go bad. A freshly cooked meal with no expiration date is a meal for everyone.
