Bacon Butty Napkin (digital print on cotton, 16” by 16”, edition of four)
Really enjoyed participating with this brief. Napkins:- what an interesting medium to exhibit! Bacon Butty Napkin is a playfully informative napkin celebrating the British love for bacon sandwiches and Heinz tomato ketchup. Underlying the aesthetic of this napkin’s content are the concerns and issues regarding the ethics of meat production and social naivety as to the origins of our food stuffs. This is by no means a piece of vegetarianism, but rather an observation that whilst we should enjoy our food, we should also think respectfully and responsibly about our food sources.
