City Cookie (Banff Version) (2000)

Taking part in the Big City residency at the Banff Centre for the Arts in Canada, a new version of City Cookie was produced. As a concept to consume this famous but small touristic town where tourists are more than local folks, cookies in the shape of country houses were made.



On the stainless steel cover of the cookie cutter box, a map of the Banff townhed. It showed the locations of the houses that the cookie cutters referred.

As dessert...

In collaboration with the kitchen staff of the Dining Room at the Banff Centre, some 150 pieces of the Banff cookies were made for a similar number of residents in the Banff Centre as dessert for the dinner.
