Interni Milan and Adam Tihany

When acclaimed restaurant designer Adam Tihany approached the artist to come up with an installation that would bring food and fashion together for display in the entrance of the Salone Internazionale del Mobile - a large restaurant design show held each spring in Milan - he knew he wanted to stray from his traditional static print work and bring his surreal visions to life. He worked closely with the designer to develop the large-panel video presentation. Five tandem projection screens ran along a 100-foot entranceway leading into the design expo. The piece was selected to be shown at other venues in Europe, the U.S., and Japan.
"A very beautiful art form of media as graphic imagery. The content of food as fashion was portrayed in a manner that made the food seem touchable and engaging. This felt like a short film on a visual odyssey of texture and substance surrounded in light. You could almost taste and smell the images as they appeared dancing about the screen. The berries at the end were a reminder of color and its originations."
