The Demise of Dinner Time by katiedraws The Demise of Dinner Time by katiedraws
A cutlery drawer with its contents composed entirely from veg - carrots, swedes and parsnips. Materials truly defying the function of the forms (:

That's so cool!!
Was it hard to get the little details, like the forks and knives?

I used a craft knife so actually it wasn't bad...nearly cut my fingers off so many times though!

academically motivated, or just a yeah-why-not activity?

Academically, though on a very strangled path so I won't try to explain! Was work for my visual arts project from two weeks ago...I'm currently watching it decay

oh, even awesome-er!
i love non-traditional materials,
especially ones that decay!

there was one girl at my uni a year older and she dyed these beautiful patterns on fabric by strategically placing fruit and allowing them to decay in the sun.

Decay makes it actually quite beautiful I think, you can't predict it and i think it looks really interesting (:

that's actually a really cool idea, i might actually do something similar, i feel quite inspired now!

I love all the stuff you can do with that sort of thing, it's great - once you start thinking outside the box, you can do anythng! though im back into drawing/traditional things on my course now and looove it, forgot how fun it was (:

it always feels nice to go back to drawing.
so fluid and straight forward.
not like some materials, ie. hair, which was itchy and made my fingers a strange texture.

it's definitely exciting to work with non-traditional materials, though. there was beautiful jewelery displayed in the halls of my uni which featured rodent bones instead of jewels. it was stunning!

where did you get the hair, anyway?

that sounds so good; i do see how non-traditional materials are inspiring though, it's great (:

Cool... Now you can set the table and serve dinner simultaneously. And no washing up. =D

(As a Stupid American, I have to ask... what is a "swede"? I see them mentioned in British books and I've never known what they are... something like a parsnip, apparently?)

It's a bit like a turnip really - it's a root vegetable (:
