CANNED (2014)

A photographic series to reveal the unnatural nature of canned food. The foodstuffs were taken from tins, solidified and photographed.

This project set out to discuss the hidden and ignored truths in everyday life. Especially foods like meat and fish should organically go bad in a few days to a week. However, when processed and canned they can last years.

Our quest for efficiency and convenience boosted the development of technology, but the price for the blind cut back on cost and labour remains unknown. Canned food is an unintentional sculpture shaped by the bottomless desire of humans.
