Memorable eating part of a group show at SOIL Gallery, Seattle USA 2014. This deck of cards with vinyl text took quotes from the guidebook to the Century 21 Seattle World's Fair of 1962, bringing the predictions of that event to the time of their anticipation- the 21st Century. The idea was that exhibition visitors could take the cards and so distribute them around the city. It was intended as a way to critique both the aspirations in the literature and the extent to which they emerged.

This work was part of Museum For An Imagined City in which a group of Glasgow based artist were asked to create visuals of their conceptualisation of Seattle, as a place they'd never visited.
