COVID-19 has turned supermarkets into dangerous spaces forcing people to shop online. The DIS/CLOSED Store is a virtual supermarket which brings a different kind of danger into focus: products that contain a harmful and hidden ingredient: palm oil. I created this platform to provoke conversation around the present implications of palm oil in consumer goods. Some companies are not fully transparent with the usage of palm oil and employ complex names in their packaging to conceal it. By gathering information from reliable sources, The DIS/CLOSED Store aims to subvert that situation.
