|Madonna della Seggiola (also known as Madonna della Sedia)Rafael - 1513-1514|
Our agenda has changed as we consider Ponder Food as Love as an exhibition.
We wish to liberate ourselves from gravity and rethink presentations based on the Cartesian Grid (a co-ordinate system whose axes are straight lines intersecting at right angles). Activating our upcoming exhibition installation in order to instigate pondering by our audience in a public space has motivated us to consider the tondo. This format was quite popular in Florentine Renaissance representation of sacred and miraculous relationships. It soon fell out of favor, apparently it was considered too domestic a format to be used in important public spaces.
