Free Food Kit

Free Food Kit in Edinburgh, UK

Medium: seeds, washi paper, glass jar, spoon
Locations: Yamaguchi, Japan; Edinburgh, UK
Year: 2013 – current

An interactive installation created for the Eco Art Village Project with Suhee Kang. Free Food Kit considers the re-connection of people with their source — and cost — of food.

The Free Food Kit is a simple call, for visitors to put seed into handmade envelopes made from biodegradable plant fibers, then take them into the community to be planted. Yet it also asks us to reconsider the role of the simple seed, a source of life for humans, and also perhaps, a source of freedom depending on how you choose to view it.
