SHARING IDEAS THAT DO GOOD

ICHIO USUI - Japanese Artist transforming food into characters

post-image
A silent Voice “Don’t treat food poorly” or “leaving food uneaten is wasteful”. These words were spoken to the artist as a child. Japan like other countries has dreadful food waste issues. The artist lent an ear to hear the voices of the lives of foods that were sacrificed because they were uneaten or past a use by date – or because they were not the right colour or shape This project places a toy eye on this waste to transform them into characters- in an effort to visualise the lives that vanish in the process of discarded food. https://ichio-usui.com
