Thirty Slices of Bread
The familiar sliced pan is a contemporary icon of convenience and modern living. Today there is a dilemma between what is perceived as a basic family staple and factory baked, shop bought goods. The white slice has become vilified and unless presented as melba-toast or a convenient base for canapés, it has no role in our more sophisticated diet. Through the intervention of casting, the pan is preserved and raised to a new status. Stripped of its wrapper, aroma free and burnt out, the slices are encapsulated in a timeless conceit.
