Miko’s collection celebrates food in its simplest form. As a counterpoint to the “flawless” photos of food we’ve all become so used to seeing on social media, Miko elevates what is normally overlooked – food scraps. By casting leftover fruit and vegetable offcuts in precious materials, she immortalises their neglected beauty. This is both a reflection of her personal relationship to the process of cooking and a commentary on society’s failure to acknowledge the waste it creates when striving for perfection.
