Artist statement: This piece presents the viewer with a discussion about something we all encounter everyday, food. Particularly food portions and how they have changed throughout recent history. While plates at your local restaurant and our own dinner tables continue to expand to meet our portion demands. The amount of food our bodies are able to successfully digest remains the same. This unbalanced consuming cycle is one contributing factor to the overwhelming amount of chronic obesity that comes along with our sedentary “still life”.
