Greenhouse Gallery: Terra Cibus

sprinkles

After a decade of capturing mostly recognizable images of food, Caren Alpert has taken an interest in photographs taken with electron microscopes, like the magnified image of cake sprinkles shown here. Alpert explains that the medium deconstructs, abstracts, and reveals the ordinary in a riveting way, and is taken with their mystery and simultaneous familiarity. She hopes that her work will transform our collective food obsession into a newfound closeness with what nourishes us. Her latest show, Terra Cibus, is now on display in the James Beard House's Greenhouse Gallery through December.
