5000 Grain of Rice was a collaborative project with Minh Nguyen that revolved around bringing to light the family-owned Asian restaurants in Leeds that have brought us a part of the home in a new country. Made for the exhibition ‘Celebrating Leeds’ commissioned by Central Square, they wanted us to celebrate things that make Leeds a special place to live in for us. When people of different cultures live in a place together to form a homogenised community there is a lot of room for different cultures to exist and thrive in their own realm. This project was aimed at bringing the small businesses that may go unnoticed within the world of franchises in the market and focus on the restaurant that focuses on delicious food with locally sourced ingredients in Leeds.
