Statement

Contaminated food brought for a lot of human suffering and damage, with economic consequences, health problems or even deadly consequences.
The causes are diverse and range from tragic misunderstandings and clearances of nature to intentional deception.
I selected a series of incidents all over the world and represented them in sandblasted glass objects on a table.
The matte pale hue reflects the outrage and also gives rest to the eye of the beholder, so that he can approach this versatile topic easier. 
The installation symbolizes the influence of man on the life as well as its powerlessness and mortality.
