Platescrapers navigates itinerant fare, comestible politics, and gastro-ritual to purvey stories about social issues and exaggerated realities; each story illustrates food as a monument to galvanize the public.

Stewart Hicks, Allison Newmeyer, and Joseph Altshuler challenge us to play with our food.
Annie Lambla connects yogurt making to dairy farms while observing the culture of the Midwest.
Thomas Hillier recounts the exodus and edible nostalgia of an English twosome.
Greg Corso champions the inclusion of cannabis cultivation into current architectural vernacular.
Kyle Andrew Sturgeon strategizes an infrastructural narrative to combat the invasion of Asian carp.
Eylül Kethüda Wintermeyer choreographs a mega-event around victuals, monuments, and mob mentality.
Francesco Vedovato sets the table with an eclectic cast of foodstuff protagonists.
Katherine Darnstadt delineates an axonometric of a healthy baby’s inputs and outputs.

SOILED is coming to the Nite Market!
