Albumen

Albumen’ is our most extravagant way of serving an egg using the protective carcass of its mother bird. The piece is made from chicken bones collected from our own diet, which we then boiled, cleaned and bleached. We were interested in ‘nose to tail dining’ and how we could use a readily available bi-product of food as a lightweight, durable material. We wanted to try and lose the macabre ideology towards bones to create something beautiful, giving it a new life.

Emily Bridge and Emma Witter are a London based artistic partnership, with a cross-disciplinary practice in set design and sculpture. They met on the Performance Design and Practice course at Central Saint Martins and first collaborated on their graduate piece ‘FEAST’, an immersive performance which they co-wrote, directed and designed.

Their interests then evolved to encompass set design, prop making and styling for commercials, fashion editorials, window display, and still life photography.
