Leftovers

From farm to fork, this project recognises the importance of challenging our conceptions and knowledge of existing systems of food production, distribution and waste. The catalyst for this work stems from the recent substantial rise in both food waste and hunger within the UK. By recognising this subject matter also as a global issue, will reinforce the importance of documenting the innovative steps projects are making locally within Bristol. The work presented uses primary, visual journalistic principles of illustration; documenting, interviewing and investigating different projects that are all combating food waste at different stages of the food cycle. This project extensively highlights the ramifications of the way in which we, as a nation, are dealing with food waste. However, through making these works has created a platform of drawings that collectively show resilience, protest and solutions to this issue. The projects often involve volunteering programmes that tackle social isolation and ideologies that push for positive social change within communities. By collating these projects into visceral and engaging forms of visual data: the correlation of beliefs towards change can be realised as a platform, to challenge and interrogate stubborn attitudes of social responsibility.
