Theory

The Food Porn Project examines the modern relationship with food.  The increasingly popular food porn trend glorifies the food we eat, immortelising the delectable morsels we concoct, and displaying them for all the world to see before we ultimately devour them.  The hyper-sexualised, obsessive manner with which we treat our food inspired an investigation into the parallels between the culinary world and sexual fetishes.

Each of the five prototypes were developed to play on the senses - enhancement and withdrawl of - aligned with common sexual fetishes; sensual touch, physical restraint, groping, biting, blindfolding and, voyerism.

These prototypes were made in collaboration with Daecan Tee.
