Food artist Hannah Rothstein showcases what it might look like if modern artists were able to customize their meals to look like their artistic works in a series dubbed, Thanksgiving Special: Seconds. The installation shows various white plates covered with all the traditional fixings of a Thanksgiving dinner rearranged according to said artist' style.

Rothstein focuses her work on the era of modernism pulling inspiration from well-known creatives such as Salvador Dali, Gustave Klimt, Joan Miro and Keith Haring. The photographs each carry a similarity of the white plate of food that is then warped and manipulated to suit the artist's given style. For example, Dali's plate is melting and featuring obscure shapes like his surrealist paintings and Jean-Michel Basquiat's plate features mash potatoes with a brown crown.
