Foodscapes: From seed to mouth
Thesis Exhibition, 2017
This thesis presents gardening, picking food and eating as enjoyable steps towards the reclamation of the food system.
Participants will select and harvest food from the tile based vertical garden with my aid. We will then prepare the items together at the preparation station, talking about the food before us and food in general. Lastly, the participant will choose a plate and sit to dine. These steps are such as to implicate the viewer in a seasonal garden landscape, the labour and bodily engagement of cooking, and a community connection in eating.
Plants, soils and seeds have been dug up from UF Organic Garden Co-Op, Field and Fork Farm and Gardens ,Swallowtail Farm, Alachua County Feed & Seed, Forage Farm and my home garden.
