What is Food (Cabbage Eating a Hamburger) | Installation at TENT Gallery, Edinburgh, UK

An installation which looks at food production in a tactile way. This living sculpture was created collaboratively with Vero Alanis and installed in TENT Gallery, Edinburgh, Scotland. The sculpture pairs the most energy-efficient foods (the cabbage) with one of the least energy efficient foods (a cheeseburger), creating ‘living’ work where the cabbage slowly feeds off of the energy of the decomposing burger.

An adjoining article was also penned at sociecity.org comparing the energy required to produce various common foods.
