This world may be an enormous pantry as the products of capitalism exist. We are living in the pantry, counting the days until our expiration dates. This expiration date may be the death or the value of oneself in society. Among this taboo idea, we are still alive.

I wanted to explore a small part of this pantry: memories that we want to preserve and the process of fully understanding one’s identity within the given expiration date. I wanted to explore our relationships with humanity and its connections with the terms used for food products.
