Accidental Sushi is a reflection on contemporary culture, inspired by a collective bus experience on the M29 in Berlin with artist Yngve Holen (Ars Viva 2014-15), travelling East to West. The work takes the mundane and 'everyday' as its starting point, embodied by the humble sandwich, and marks our fetish for the exotic.
