Today's Special Dish

Description of idea

Describe your idea and concept of your work in relation to the festival outlines:

In this modern world we live in, many food production companies started injecting chemicals in their products. Many consumers are not aware of this fact, so in my composition i try to highlight this issue and get people to think about what does their food contain. I created a fine-dining setting and put chemicals instead of the meal. The plate-cover revealing adds an element of surprise for the audience as they don't except the outcome.

What kind of communication approach do you use?


What are in your opinion concrete benefits to the society because of your communication?

I believe that i created an effective composition for the audience, in the sense that makes people think of what they actually eat, and what does their food contain. And hopefully, this thinking leads to taking an effective action.

What did you personally learn from creating your submitted work?

By creating the piece i submitted, i have learned that there are many problems in the world that people are not aware of. And i have also learned that change starts with individuals.

Why is your work, GOOD communication WORK?

My work is a good communication work, because it delivers the message easily, it speaks to a global audience, and it is able to make people take actions.

Where and how do you intent do implement your work?

Since my work has a global audience, then it can be placed anywhere in the world (streets, exhibitions, galleries, magazines..).

Did your intervention had an effect on other Media. If yes, describe the effect? (Has other media reported on it- how? Were you able to change other media with your work- how?)

My work hasn't been exhibited yet.
