In these works, Geoffrey compares the sugar and fat bloom to refugees who often go unseen and undocumented within the societies and cultures they arrive into. Although the refugees, like the bloom, can be viewed as undesirable, they are an integral and necessary part of the fabric of society and, translated into chocolate terms, play a fundamental part of its structure and complexity; of its taste, texture and sensation. 

 

The fats and sugars gradually bloom, forming crystals on the surface of the chocolate. These crystals can be seen as a fundamental living growth, developing and adapting to the moisture content in the air and its surroundings; producing by its very nature a dissonant dynamic between how chocolate is normally perceived in both its solid and liquid forms.
