Daily Catch is a site specific photographic project exploring found take away food inside plastic bags to explore the cultural connotations and food relationship with female identity. Using scan-ography, the artist investigates both the habitat of food and its relation to the culture of using single use plastic bag containers in contemporary China. The images result in unsettling, abstract, larger than life size photographic prints making visible mundane materials and the environmental impacts of food waste.
