Artist Jihyun Ryou’s work uses food storage techniques from the pre-refrigerator era in a way that’s both useful and beautiful. Her goal is to, “Try to bring your food in front of your eyes” to counteract that tendency we all have to make our refrigerators unintentional composters.
The techniques she demonstrates include:
- Sand, both to keep vegetables vertical and to decrease humidity
- Using the ethylene gas in apples to keep potatoes fresh
