Edible Reflections
About
US PREMIER
Originally created for the Swedish Exhibition Agency, Edible Reflections is an interactive installation in which two strangers learn about each other and also themselves. Participants listen to an audio recording while staring into a mirror with a smile-shaped hole cut out of it. Through this hole, the participants interact with various types of food and see both themselves and the other person. During the 20-minute interaction, the audio recording takes them on an almost therapeutic journey of self-reflection, acceptance, and enjoyment that allows them to connect with the person on the other side of the table.
