'Desserted': Jessica Olah


Physical nourishment is not the sole purpose of eating: we often eat to connect with, celebrate, comfort, or even avoid our feelings. Desserts, specifically, are a conflicting category of food. They get a bad rap for health reasons, but are ubiquitous at social gatherings as gifts and treats. In this ongong body of work, Jessica Olah explores what food means to us in the emotional, mental, and social parts of our being while working out her own relationship with dessert and the idea of "missing out".
