Assignment

Create a critical painterly still-life.


Goal

I wanted to criticize the extreme food waste in opposition to the shortage of nutriment existing at the same time.


Action

I have researched the method of still-life and its examples throughout history until current times. Then I chose the subject I want to criticize which is the inequality in resource distribution. Because the subject is still-life I have done research on cutlery language and staged a shoot that shows three different tables that represent three different problems I focused on: overflow of food, waste of food, and lack of food. I have positioned my props to tell my story and edited the chosen images to mimic the attributes of still-life that caught my attention through my research.
