Why do we eat soup with a spoon, when we could drink it, too? Why do we sit on chairs and not on the floor when we eat? And why do we wear tight, uncomfortable clothing while doing so, and not aprons or bathrobes? The way we eat is not biologically predetermined, but rather molded by our culture.
honey and bunny developed a work that toys with these very questions for the Victoria & Albert Museum. They showed unusual tools at the table - place settings of a different kind. They presented the very normal supermarket (industrialized) food as you have it never seen before. And they presented short, ironic videos, screened insides porcelain, projected to vegetables or to a dinner jacket.
