Diversity: An Essential Ingredient

by: Amy Junod Placentra, Collingswood, New Jersey

Sometimes I ADD mushrooms to my soup just to remind the noodles that we’re all oddly shaped.

Artist Statement

I wanted to explore the ways in which enrichment can mean more than just the amassment of wealth. This idea led me toward the symbolism of food labels as graphics that list all that is good about a product. I wanted to create a design that represented the many ways in which diversity nourishes our minds and bodies. Illustrating diversity through food labels gives a sense of something that is immediate and necessary for one’s health. The benefits are in black-and-white (literally).
