“I am at the gate, on my way to St. John’s in Canada. Outside the morning brightness reflects on large cumulus clouds: soft cream and blues. It may have taken a few years of talking about Newfoundland, but I am now lucky enough to have a two-week residency on this island.”
‘Food-Newfoundland’ is the first project in the series of five that examines Abraham Maslow’s ‘Hierarchy of Need’ theory. Maslow address the biological and physiological needs: air, food, drink and sleep. Annabel expresses on this project that our Needs are continually evolving, and the exploration of our first Need, is but a start.
