A FEAST FOR THE SENSES

WEBSITE

To promote holistically healthy and nutritious food systems and challenge the dominant narrative about food in the US, I hosted a café and curated a disruptive advertising campaign and art exhibition in the University of Washington Business School that highlighted truths about the industrial and sustainable food systems and their social and environmental effects. This project juxtaposed the concepts of “farm to table” and “firm to table;” and included the combination of art, music, poetry, and film to influence the participant’s experience. Through the method of a pop-up café called “A Feast for the Senses,” the event utilized culinary storytelling to encourage active community participation and engagement around food, facilitated dialogue, and the act of eating to motivate people to think critically about what is behind a food brand and the power of an individual ethic of choice around food consumption
