IIs a two-part project referencing how humans and particular animals pass knowledge, data and information onto their young for day-to-day existence and for use in the future, utilising both instinct and adaptive behaviour.

Starting at 12 months and 14 months two infants (initially independently) start to learn about edible plants and eating things as they grow by taking part, and following a parent and then later an older sibling looking for edible species on verges, hedges, bushes, tree's and alongside the shore. This behaviour is intentionally set out as a political parameter of knowldege to counteract and, to form a grounding from the external conditioning and the normalisation of the technically proccessed edible economy.

eating things Part one is recorded from 2010 as an on-going subjective taxonomy.
