Luscious, playful, fetishised: Food for being looked at considers the history of food through its image culture. Images of food, from preparation to the final dish, are shared and ‘consumed’ widely across print and digital media. They are used to reinforce a diversity of lifestyles, an aesthetic understanding, or a moral pledge through their voyeuristic composition and distribution. This project selects several culinary themes and traces their elevation into symbols of consumer identities through cookbooks, magazines, blogs on foodporn or cookery videos showing how to prepare mouthwatering feasts.
