it's time to turn up the heat...

the time has come again...the tinsnips are out and the cellophane bags are bulging with coloured tupperware chips.

In late 2006 i created tupperware cakes that I made for a contemporary arts project where I looked at turning the functional object into something purely decorative that could be collected and admired. My project centred around the idealization of objects and was inspired heavily by the theories of walter benjamin and the interior.

i have the opportunity to show some at a local gallery so I'm in the process of baking more and presenting them for the showing. this involves playing with cellophane bags, paper, buttons and ribbon...yum. photos of the final product will be posted over the weekend but for now..take a look at some delicious preparation shots. any queries, just email me.

happy thursday.
