On May 11, 2005 I was invited to feed the novelists in Flux Factory's show Novel. Three novelists are living in the gallery space for a month, with no distractions, their goal is to finish a novel, but they need food for thought.

As each of these Novelists is living in their own specially constructed container, I felt it would be nice to present them with food, each in its own container.

I decided to use newpapers as place mats as the only connection to the rest of the world. They felt that eating on the New York Times was appropriate.

The Menu as written on the kitchen paper napkins:

Menu: May 11, 2005
Appetizer: Red Jacket Orchard Fuji Apple Juice
               Tropicana Pure Premium Orange Juice
Main:      Natural by Nature Grass-Fed Whole Milk
Dessert:   Bonne Maman Jam
