Many people take food for granted, but each moment is a potential step backward towards a new wave of global economic crisis; this is the issue addressed in Lost Supper by Marussiac. According to the artist, money has lost value and is only virtual tender, whereas food is much more tangible and of real importance.

Thus is the basis of Lost Supper, which is a brand new artwork from the artist's collection DayLIFE. The installation involved a large room, in the center of which sits a big toy bus of humanitarian aid. In the bus are tables and chairs, but no one sits at the table, which is designed as a blackboard. Though this alone is a compelling image, Marussiac goes forward to virtually invite politicians and modern influences to the table, including the likes of Bill Gates, Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin.
