Dinner gatherings are a time to celebrate food. We talk about the food, we touch the food, we eat the food and our bodies break the food down producing waste. Other waste such as the food packages are removed from this practice, the packages are most often discarded without a second thought. In this video, the packages become the centre piece of the table and much like the food prepared and consumed at the dinner party, the packaging is transformed through touching, feeling, ripping and breaking the packaging down, not unlike the way in which our bodies break down the food we consume. Through making these materials focal and central to the event of consumption, we can see this packaging as an integral part of our contemporary food culture.
