food = love

food is a bubble of love, it heals a heavy heart… but beyond that, it’s a bit like music, art, and the other stuff you love, in that you make it to share with the people in your heart. quietly all the time waiting, and hoping they love it too. because if they do, or at the least love the idea of it, they will forever love you

6432 miles, some stamps and an idea

Did you know there are 6432 miles between New Delhi and Canberra? That is a long long way. And while New Delhi and Canberra are very different places....there are many things that are the same.  

The differences are obvious, as soon as you get out of the airport in New Delhi. The people - so many. The air - thick with that underlying heat (even at 4.30 in the morning). The colours - so vivid and bright. The chaos - so...well, chaotic!

And Canberra by contrast is still and quiet, the air crisp under the blanket of winter frost. The colours in Canberra a muted, a newer built city on a rural fringe - all greys and greens and wheat coloured browns.    

Our lives are very different too, living in theses capitals - but some things are the same. This project is about celebrating the similarities, and gaining comfort that this really is a small world. Watch us draw the similar... consistent threads of life, share it with you and then gift it to someone 6432 miles away.
