What if I decode the culture surrounding me simply into colours
Colours as part of human visual perception sense by our eyes, but derives our stimulation, impression and perception s in our mind. Colours recognize universally but they have broad meaning depends on where, when, which and how they appeared.
Food expresses our emotions and so is colours. Food and colours are deeply tight with culture. Capturing colours from food waste and represent it again on the table, together with the fresh edible one will give us another alternative perspective about the way we see food and colours.
Learning South Korean Culture through food, then capture and visualised it simply in colours is part of my long term research rediscovering new possibilities for textile colouring materials and techniques.
I cooked the colours
Peel, mince, and marinade is cooking activities that applied the same way in making natural dyes for textile. Through this easy process, I captured the colour as the essence of culture on our daily basis.
