Traying on Fish Box Tops
February 8, 2010 § 2 Comments
Playing with your food is fun, so why not with food containers? I tested this theory recently at Locust Projects, a Design District art cooperative where Michael conducted a demo of local heirloom and beet salad complemented by MGFD bar manager Ryan’s strawberry and basil caipirinhas. Cuban artist Leyden Rodriguez Casanova has transformed the space into a playground for grown-ups, installing rolling hills of pink carpet inspired by memories from his youth. You can read about the event on my friend Paula’s blog, Mango & Lime. Quickly, before everything went back to the restaurant for a good scrub-down, we stole a moment to get silly in the peanut gallery. Why waste a good pink carpet hill on mere sitting, when you have fish box tops handy? We couldn’t come up with a good reason not to. Thanks to Paula for capturing it on the Flip for posterity.
