Rotating the zucchini to get the information about the event

Last Sunday we brought our ideas of the Artist Recipe Project to the Alfred Farmers Market. Catching the end of the zucchini season, we selected one of our artists Matthew Underwood’s zucchini bread recipe and brought it into reality, as an endorsement of our project. Artist Recipe Project recently became part of 1% for the Planet. As we introduced people to 1% for the Planet, this allowed us to talk about why we decided to make these reusable wooden plates and install the simple setup. We chose all of the ingredients from the local as the material for the zucchini bread. During the time of putting everything together, it gave us a chance to experiment with laser cutting on vegetables which had a unique visual expression that matched our project.

From responses like a grandma’s complement about the bread, to sincere discussions with college students about our project, we are convinced that this “making” couldn’t happen without the appreciation for each other, gathering the seriousness of art and daily moments.

Bee's wrap for The Rogue Carrot

A couple of days boiling beets, cabbage, and turmeric, cutting cloth melting bees wax. Artist Recipe Project relates,  this spring has sprung into the next generation of our sustainable food wraps. Combining the unmistakeable thirst for commerce and our undeniable quest and passion for sustainable, reusable products, we now have a second edition of our wraps at The Rogue Carrot in Alfred, New York.

Natural dyed bee's wrap

As a way to help fund the production of our book and with an interest in ways to take better care of the planet, we have decided to create an exciting and useful alternative to plastic wrap. Working with vegetable dyes, organic linen, and beeswax, we have produced a reusable beeswax infused piece of hand dyed cloth that will keep your food fresh. You can use it to wrap fruits, cheese, vegetables, and cover leftovers in the fridge.

We now have our beeswax wraps available locally at The Rogue Carrot in Alfred, New York.

Kombucha at Minority Space Vernissage

As Minority Space’s inaugural group exhibition, ‘A Flat Pack Life?’ takes the space’s original function and construction - a modernised living room located in a rapidly developing area in Beijing where urbanisation and gentrification are significantly taking place - as a point of departure. A modern interior is widely defined by the varied manufactured appliances and furnitures inside the household courtesy of the advent of industrialisation and mass production. The ready-to-assemble or plat pack product, emblematically mastering by IKEA, has established a certain aesthetics and lifestyle. 

Artist recipe project Relates provided kombucha in the recognisable IKEA bottles.

Clean house dish soap

We have opted for a more interesting form of promotion for the Artist Recipe Project. We met the owner and artisan of the Sellwood based soap company Camamu, Lori Basson and decided to create a label for one of the best soaps we have ever come across. The soap is a dish-washing soap in bar form and carries all of the information to invite artists to submit their art in the form of a recipe. Camamu produced the soap and labels for us to distribute to galleries, museums, shops and booksellers throughout the city of Portland.
