Artist Ioli Kalliopi Sifakaki cast tablewear from her own body parts, and then invited friends to eat dinner from them:
Royal College of Art graduate Iola Kalliopi Sifakaki designed a dinner service cast from her own body and then invited a dozen of her male friends to feast from the tableware.
The dinner service, and the dining furniture Sifikaki designed, are based on the Greek myth of Tantalus, in which Tantalus boils his son Pelops and offers him up as food to the gods to appease them.
Says the artist:
By casting myself, I copy, dismantle and offer parts of me, in order to provoke new, unusual relationships between the maker and the user.
Hmm. I'm thinking of a new product that we can offer in the Neatorama Store....
