Although we try to ignore what’s going on behind the scenes at a typical fast food restaurant — when it’s stripped down and minimalized, it could be quite beautiful.
At least this version is, by artist Roxy Paine. Officially-titled Carcass, the scale replica fast food kitchen is carved entirely from wood. From the coffee pots to the french fry droppers — Paine spared no detail in the kitchen’s creation. Except the grease stains, and pimply cashiers.
Carcass is on view at Kavi Gupta Gallery in Chicago.
