"TV Dinners"

I popped into The Printspace earlier this evening to see their latest exhibition. It's a tiny one consisting of six images by Ed James.
Four of the six feature TV dinners in fine detail and lit by strobes. The underlying premise is to show people who normally eat these meals in the dim light of a television set what they are really eating!
The colours of runner beans and tomato sauce appeared highly saturated and the texture of spaghetti and sweetcorn was very plastic in appearance. There was one image of chicken nuggets which made them look absolutely vile. I found the images both amusing and thought-provoking. You actually wonder what goes into this 'food'. It all looked very artificial which is no doubt the object of the exercise.
