SNACK CITY // M-RAD Architecture
Snack City is an installation involving a selection of small bites that was first created and served to as an edible component for the first Salon Series at M-Rad Architecture in Los Angeles in July, 2015. Using one of their oversized mirrors that typically leans against a wall as a table top, a selection of small bites were procured and stacked, shaped, or made to stand upright to suggest an architectural landscape. Stacked cucumber rounds, pickles with their ends cut off stood upright, halved dates held almonds, popcorn dispersed at random like pedestrians meandering the streets, crackers piled precariously, goat cheese rolled in paprika, poppy seeds or finely chopped parsley held court like points on a map indicating landmarks. Green grapes complimented red raspberries... and then there was sliced salami.
