[.PROCESS.FOODS.]


 

The name of this series, Process Foods, is a double entendre, both referring to screen printing with process colors and also the processed nature of foods. Primarily all of the foods in this series were chosen based on their iconographic qualities, prepared, photographed, eaten, and screen printed.

This series was started to explore the iconography and symbolic nature of food. This includes foods that are heavily marketed, advertised and easily identifiable. When we see a picture of a hamburger we immediately know that it is a hamburger and have attached feelings and memories based on our experiences with this food. We can imagine what something tastes like and remember a time when we enjoyed eating it
