We are the moment. What we are doing now has never happened before.
We had our first workshop this week. Taking inspiration from Rirkrit Tiravanija’s Curry installations.
Is cooking art?
This is the question we faced.
As we have been looking at these past weeks, anything can be art, anything is art. If someone says its art, it is art.
I love cooking with a passion but if I am doing it at home to make my dinner I wouldn’t count it as art. However, what we were doing in this workshop I would call it art. Our intension was to make art and that is exactly what we did.
We worked as a team, helping each other to make this beautiful, colourful dish, that not only looked good but tasted divine.
Art is about perspective, you don’t have to like the piece but it is still art even if you disagree.
I think the process behind how we made the curry was the art. How we all had to work together, to talk to each other for the curry to actually taste nice. The final outcome, the placemats and the swan napkins are all the little add ons that complete the piece.
I loved this workshop. I think it really showed us more of what everyday art is.
Everyday art is whatever you want to make it. It can be as simple as a dirty cup you intend to throw in the bin or it can be something as beautiful as all of us coming together to make a tasty lunchtime dish.
LONELY NO MORE
I think that a simple hug can mean a lot, it can make a persons whole face light up instantly if it’s what they need.
In this video the more hugs that I am given, the more I warm up and start to react to each person. By the last hug, the colour has finally come back into my life and I realise that I don’t have to be alone anymore, that there are these bunch of individuals who want to be here for me. The group hug at the end symbolises that all of us needed a hug, that we were all going through forms of loneliness.
