The Food Landscape

The Food Landscape is a conceptual project that visually narrates the end of my breastfeeding journey. Based on a food log that documented everything my youngest child ate, from the time she started solids at 9 months until the time she weaned at 17 months, the silkscreens employ her foods as the actual inks to chart her gradually changing nutritional intake. The early months show little evidence of the food, when she had just started to eat, while the later months reflect the increasing percentage of solids in her diet. Bound into books by month, the nearly 300 prints function variously as an aesthetic record, a critical inquiry, an illumination of domestic roles, and a symbolic beginning as well as an ending.
