“Noting food as an essential in our life and considering its visual and social aspect, I suggested each student to lay the table for a guest they wanted to invite – it could be their family, a friend or an idol – thinking of the personality and favourites of the guest. Students made settings with tablecloth, cutlery, dishware, flower etc. of their choice through the workshops. We photographed each table setting from above. The photos were laminated on the tabletops and ten tables for four people each were produced, replacing the existing grey ones in the school canteen.” – Mako Ishizuka
