This year’s graduating Design students will present their outcomes online starting 22 June, under the title “Hey, look, something is happening!” Until then, the blog gives you a peek at the work that will be on display. Today, we’re highlighting Maya Marangi:
Idiolect-able is a linguistic analysis project of the ‘cookbook’ and the ‘recipe’. I focus on illustrating how the ‘cookbook’ and the ‘recipe’ can serve to show a change in dynamic regarding eating behaviours. These texts can aid an understanding of food histories and the discourse surrounding female self-identity, cultural identity and ‘disidentity’ within the kitchen. I have used the recipe as a vessel, most recently creating a cookbook that works to deconstruct and reshape the possible forms a recipe can take.
