Dinner parties evoke images of delicious, elevated food and kinship. This project flips a dinner party on its head. The friends and food look phenomenal, until you take a closer look… All of the food is spoiled, rotten. Is this woeful ignorance, blindness, or a group of privileged people turning the other cheek? You be the judge, while the party goers celebrate their moldy meal.
