About This Project

”You are what you eat”

– our eating habits reflect our lifestyle, which has
changed more than ever within the last 100 years.

These changes can be seen by the juxtaposition
of the eating habits of four family generations.

Great-grandmother, grandmother, mother and
daughter talk about their eating habits at a dinner table. By sharing their personal stories they establish a connection to more detailed information on the social history of food.

The stories are visualized by white painted food on the table which illuminates parallel to their corresponding stories. The real image is then projected on the aforementioned food revealing a more detailed explanation stitched into the table cloth.
