This continuous project started a couple of years ago when I discovered an immense amount of discarded food which was too old to be sold at the local supermarket.
Although it was considered unsellable, I found that through the ageing process, the food started to show their wonderful imperfections and colours. This fascinated me to the point that I decided to challenge myself by using my unique technique of combining multiple scanning data and multiple camera data. Though my process, I hoped to bring attention to the beauty and uniqueness these discarded produce have.
