Independent packaging project for perishable goods:
Is it reasonable that it takes several years for a milk carton to decompose naturally, when the milk goes sour after a week? This Too Shall Pass is a series of food packaging were the packaging has the same short life-span as the foods they contain. The package and its content is working in symbiosis.
Smoothie package Gel of the agar agar seaweed and water are the only components used to make this package. To open it you pick the top. The package will wither at the same speed as its content. It is made for drinks that have a short life span and needs to be refrigerated, fresh juice, smoothies and cream for example.
Rice Package Package made of biodegradable beeswax. To open it you peel it like a fruit. The package is designed to contain dry goods, for example grains and rice.
Oil package A package made of caramelized sugar, coated with wax. To open it you crack it like an egg. When the material is cracked the wax do no longer protect the sugar and the package melts when it comes in contact with water. This package is made for oil-based food.
Making the print cut for my car has been a lovely test of figuring out solutions to problems that I never really think about in a day to day work setting. Like what if you have a vector that is a single color fill, but you want to fill the negative space in the body, but you still want to see the flowers between the dragon’s fringe? This stuff is what being a production artist is about. It took some poking around with tools that I don’t usually use, but eventually the problem got solved and it made things a bit easier for me for when I actually make the final production file.
