AN ARTIST'S PALETTE/PALATE FOR 2016
Over the years, interdisciplinary artists Imin Yeh and I have worked on several projects as the collaborative Jews for Dim Sum. In conjunction with Declarations for the New Year at SOEX, we created a participatory event that highlights their love for print, color, flavor and treats. We named eight colors for artists for the new year: White on White White, Secret Studio Snacks Orange, What to Wear Black, Red Dot Sold!, Let's Get a Coffee Sometime Brown, Self Doubt Green, We Regret to Inform You Blues, It's More of a Feeling Pink. Each color was printed under a frame where the edible color was applied either sprayed, printed, or brushed. A small treat of the corresponding color was then set on the print in the frame. After a toast with green juice, the guests ate their treats and were welcome to take the placemat home, with residue from the experience.
