Often-deemed worthless residue waters from traditional fermented dishes representing countries from around the world, packaged as perfumes, highlight how valuable the microbes in these foods are to the human body. This range of anti-perfumes accompanied with a food insults* printer, also draws attention to the fact that often cultures are ridiculed for their most precious and proudest national dishes. This installation serves as a reminder that we all eat the same.
*All the insults were gathered from actual Youtube footage.
This project was designed for the Edible Invisible exhibition at Dutch Design Week 2018, curated by Marije Vogelzang.
