Artist’s statement

'Oh no! My food isn’t pretty enough to Instagram!’ SMART Solutions® is here for your next catering crisis. The accelerated pace of modern life has resulted in the proliferation of fast food. Simultaneously, there is not enough time for the creation and appreciation of handcrafted goods. SMART Solutions® provides a multifaceted solution for your next celebration; pre-packaged, non-perishable goods and utensils mean your next meeting or Instagram post will not be without tasteful treats. This kit removes the process of emotion from the preparation and consumption of food – with love preinstalled, there’s no need to worry!

Influencing artists: Claes Oldenburg, Patianne Stevenson, Robin Antar
