KITCHEN WASTE, a research project held in 2014

┬┤Where did my red cabbage and carrot tops go?'

Netherlands produce 0.8 billion kilos of food waste a year. This project is an investigation to re-purpose kitchen leftovers to use them as potential fabric dye.
There is also a poetic line in the natural colors fading in time- being replaced with new ones through new encounters of other kitchens and waste. Everything having its own lifespan, the ephemarilty of nature.
"We cannot hold on to everything in nature, it has its own course. Translated to everything we encounter- just the same like love relations. Food creates moments to engage, and the waste becomes the tool to re-connect through sustainability." waste dye.jpg
