This Too Shall Pass

This Too Shall Pass is a series of food packages where the packaging has the same life span as the foods they contain.
The packaging is designed for rice, oil and smoothies. The oil packaging is made from caramelized sugar, coated with wax. To open it you crack it like an egg. When the material is cracked the package can be melted in water.
The rice packaging is made from biodegradable beeswax and the smoothie packet from agar-agar seaweed gel and water.
One of the packs is in the early stages of development for a food brand.
