poster for Materia; food & war

March 28, 2010

Michelle Stroebe and I are collaborating for the Materia project. I am an artist and Michelle is a Nutrition Scientist. We were both interested in developing something for public outreach as far as a pro-literacy element regarding the subject of food, shopping for food, and increasing awareness among consumers about additives in food. We were both interested in the relationship of food and war, and after researching the history of food posters during ww1 and ww2, we decided to design a poster and a card that could be distributed, handed out, framed, and otherwise used as a a way to raise awareness of food consumption and chemical additives.
