Redesigned the website today: http://starvationseeds.performative.com/. Much improved, though still in progress.
I also recorded the last two video segments, one about liquid food, one about mud cookies. Someday I'll redo the footage with someone behind the camera. For now, it's all strange, static shots of my workspace and my disembodied hands. There is something really compelling about how the shots are composed though--maybe I'll keep going like this.
Yesterday N. asked me about my influences for this project. Coming up with a list was a good exercise and one I should elaborate on. For now, quickly, I'll say: Alison Knowles, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Corin Hewitt, Ted Purves and Susanne Cockrell, Celia Herrera Rodriguez, many more. Links & more discussion of influences to come.
