006 Craft Work: [The Descent of Man] - Mental Health Awareness Week

Friday 12th May 2017 1:30pm

MHAW in potatoe on edge of plate
Make something with your breakfast before you eat it

MATERIALS: A plate of food, to include alphabetti spaghetti, with a knife and a fork.

METHOD: Using only the food on the plate somehow spell out a message for humanity.

NARRATIVE: Well, it is Mental Health Awareness Week so I thought I'd create a reminder of that, spelling it out by craving the words from two potato waffles...

Perhaps using the alphabetti spaghetti would have been the more obvious choice but

  • I wanted a larger and a more impactful font

  • I wanted to highlight how the immediate and obvious is never the only option

  • I wanted to demonstrate how alternative ways of thinking can

Delight and
