Fodder is a provocational, designed meal experience. The conscientious meat eater is offered a meal through which to "really get to know" the animal that's served as the main course, by eating a set of preceding dishes which are prepared from agricultural feedstuffs.
The meal implicitly sets up a corporeal scramble; by feeding to human eaters food intended for animals, and by serving this meal in a specially designed communal feeding basin, eaters begin to associate their own bodies with those of the animals.
Each course represents a particular period in the life of a beef-cattle. Theatrical presentation of the dishes turns agricultural production into an embodied narrative, prompting guests to question their own attitudes towards eating meat.
The meal has no utensils. Eaters were asked to use their hands, with each dish designed to accommodate eating manually.
Elaborately presented, decadent portions of meat made sure to reference the body of the animal in explicit ways.
Eaters were challenged to balance their recognition of meat as part of an individual's body against the desire to consume flesh and spectacle.
