The Here (M-cife) set addresses foraging activities possible in the human altered environment.  The system of transport and acquisition developed for this project is both practical and poetic.  Individuals are invited to the collective and we embark on a bike trip to forage for food and gather materials to make objects with.  One of the items developed for this trip is ceramic bowls crafted to facilitate the foraging of salad items complete with a straining net so the meal can be washed before consumption. Each member is responsible for a different aspect of the trip -documenter, gatherer, maker, and conversationalist.  An ethic of environmental sustainability and living in harmony with ones surroundings within a human altered environment is made visible through the design decisions of these objects.   These objects make a proposition of human powered movement and a suggestion that our immediate environment can provide sustenance done so in a way that engages ones imagination in further possibilities.
