Fame is a mosaic made out of old bread cut into squares, and rearranged to write out the word “fame”. Fame is a very carefully chosen word, as it means popularity in English, and hunger in Italian. In moments when the world is polarized in poverty on the one side and abundance on the other, it only seems logical to bring those to extremes into one word. I have chosen old bread thrown out of supermarkets as the material, in order to remind myself and others of the overproduction of food in some countries, and to bring to the attention the need for food in others. Rethinking our consumer policies on personal and state levels will hopefully make this work obsolete.
