kyle bean started the mixed media meals project during the COVID-19 lockdown and set himself the challenge of only using materials found at home. the result is a mouth-watering series that includes dishes like tofu ramen, a halloumi burger, pesto pasta, sushi, tacos and a lasagne. the designer documents the process of making the ‘meals’ and then photographs the final creation on a brightly colored background.
