Presentation: Seven 19inch Screens and Seven Take Out Menu’s
In collaborating with 7 different chefs for 7 different meals from 7 different nyc locations, I explored a fresh take on creativity in what presents itself in the kitchen before the actual cooking happens. Essentially playing with food alongside with the cook’s personalities, before the food is cooked.
Creativity on the fly is a characteristic I truly believe in, and in working with each chef I let this soar. Wanting to get into their environments with them and working with who they are, it was an exploration just as much as it was cooking/eating with them in their homes.
Life is unleashed in the kitchen…..this series aims at exploring that further and collaboratively with each chef and each ingredient used in their cooking.
