THE HUMAN FOODPRINT 2 explores the meaning of art as a message courier. As art is not only beauty and color but representative of our society and its flaws. The plastic packagings which carry our food, are carelessly thrown away and have an enormous impact on our environment even if their life in our hands is temporary. By reproducing significant amounts of the same plaster objects and painting them individually, they become visible. Their physical presence is supposed to provoke awareness. The second part of The Human Foodprint 2 raises the awareness with a bright, fluorescent and almost unnatural color selection used by animals to warn predators about their toxicity. This mechanism is called aposematism.
