Painting With Peas

The piece of art, which was created with the support of Love Food Hate Waste, measures 2m x 3m, and is ?painted? with potatoes, onions, mixed root vegetables, mixed cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, baby sweetcorn, fine green beans, runner beans, peas, sugar snaps, leeks, spring onions, sprouts, mixed lettuce, courgette, peppers, spinach, cucumber, mushrooms, tomatoes and celery. 

The map weighed 304kg in total, which equates to a cost of about £323 of wasted salad and vegetables every six seconds.

This project can be related to what I want to do, because it also uses food and it's waste in an artwork in order to represent the issue which our society has to face today.
