EVERY THING WE TOUCH by Paula Zuccotti

Imagine keeping a record of everything you touch in a day, from the moment you wake until you fall asleep and gathering all those things together for a single photograph. What would that image say about you and your day? Would strangers get a good sense of your life by looking at the objects laid out in chronological order? What would they deduce about you? What would they miss? Paula Zuccotti’s Every Thing We Touch documents a day in the life of 62 people around the world through the objects they own, consume, need, choose, treasure and can’t let go.

Near Earth Asteroids

Edible Art Objects – NEDILL food design

Zsuzsi Matók’s works jolt us across the boundaries of customary gastronomy: the concept of her latest light-based food design show is based on interstellar clouds of asteroids in outer space, which occasionally intersect with the Earth’s atmosphere. These meteorites subtly light up the space in a fusion of extraordinary forms and tastes with the help of molecular gastronomy and design.
