Good Eater

The main focus of this site-specific installation about food and motherhood in the Eagle Heights Community Gardens in Madison, Wisconsin in 2010 was a floating table created by the women in the group using cyanotypes on fabric, a type of photographic printmaking.  Hanging above the table was a serving platter and bowl with food from the garden that people could sample from and contribute to. In the rest of the arbor were plates with cyanotypes and quotes from the women in the project about feeding and eating, and napkin rings containing napkins stitched with questions that we posed to the audience.  Viewers were encouraged to peek at the napkins and contribute their thoughts by writing on fabric and adding them to the installation.

Good Eater was featured in  At The Table: Mothers Sharing Their Stories Through Art, a short documentary  by filmmaker Brijetta Hall Waller. It screened at the Wisconsin Film Festival in 2011.
