006 craft work - Mental Health Awareness Week


006 Craft Work: [The Descent of Man] - Mental Health Awareness Week
Friday 12th May 2017 1:30pm

Make something with your breakfast before you eat it
MATERIALS: A plate of food, to include alphabetti spaghetti, with a knife and a fork.

METHOD: Using only the food on the plate somehow spell out a message for humanity.

NARRATIVE: Well, it is Mental Health Awareness Week so I thought I'd create a reminder of that, spelling it out by craving the words from two potato waffles... perhaps using the alphabetti spaghetti would have been the more obvious choice but

  • I wanted a larger and a more impactful font; 
  • I wanted to highlight how the immediate and obvious is never the only option; 
  • I wanted to demonstrate how alternative ways of thinking can


Delight and
Surprise
