First Meal 01: Champagne

A new series of first meals exonerees after leaving of prison. Kristine Bunch describes meal of seafood, fresh vegetables, and champagne and adds “It was exciting but very scary. It was just unreal, a moment snapped out of time, like a dream that I expected someone to come snatch." Green met Kristine Bunch at The Last Supper exhibition in 2015. Along with foods, to suggest the passage of time Green references a Utopic, Victorian flow blue transferware. Food stories are generously provided by exoneree and Center on Wrongful Convictions, Bluhm Legal Clinic, Northwestern University.
