Cradle examines the relationship between hands and plate-forms
Exploratory engagements between the hand and the meal was used to examine gestures and combinations of forms that can lead to engaged eating awareness. The process of this work imagines the eating experience as an interactive landscape where the relationship between the hand and the meal becomes an abstracted embrace.
As a result, Cradle uses form and gesture to avert our myopic consumption patterns into motions that symbolise care and attention to what we put inside ourselves, ultimately reinterpreting what it means to eat.
