On THE FOOD SEEN today, Yael Raviv, director of the Umami Food and Art Festival, is joined by the event’s curator, Ame Gilbert, and participating artist Terri Hanlon, as they ready themselves for Edible Architecture: Umami 2011 Gala Event on Monday, March 28th, a fundraiser to support future Umami projects.

The Umami Food and Art Festival, was created in 2008 as a non-profit biennale event. It offers a meeting ground to people who use food as a medium and who present their audience with a multi-sensory experience in the dining room, or gallery space. The festival’s objective is to open avenues of collaboration between these artists and culinary professionals and expose them to new audiences from both the art and the culinary worlds. Choosing food as a common thread allows Umami to present new ways to look at art and to integrate art into daily life. Umami offers an environment for non-commercial, time-based art and encourages artists who work with non-traditional mediums and forms.”

On today’s THE FOOD SEEN, Henry Hargreaves left his native New Zealand for “the big OE” (overseas experience) and found an unexpected job opportunity in Bangkok. A man with a camera asked him to pose, and there launched his modeling career, working on campaigns for the likes of Prada. But while on photo shoots, he realized that he actually wanted to be behind the lens. He started shooting food for restaurants, but there was a playfulness missing. He worked as a bartender at Schiller’s to support his habit, photographing gingerbread and candy constructed art galleries; licorice windows for the Guggenheim, a sugary facade for the Louvre’s glass pyramid. Rainbow colored burgers with all the fixings. An alphabet spelled out in bacon. Cakes of iconic fast food dishes lit on fire. Presidents made of Jell-O. Henry stopped waiting for work to come to him, and put his conceptual projects into action himself. A series of last meals of death row inmates called “No Seconds” went viral. He exposed what’s on many musicians “Band Riders” (e.g. Lady Gaga asks for “a small plate of cheese on ice *no smelly, no sweaty). What’s next on the plate for Henry Hargreaves? This show has been sponsored by S. Wallace Edwards & Sons. Music by takstar.

"With still life photos, I can see everything that I want in my head, and all I have to do is move objects around and play with light." [11:30]

"I never studied photography... I'm just kind of playing with food." [17:50]
