Hamburger Diaries, 2012
Premiered 2012 at Aurora Picture Show, Houston TX
Hamburger Diaries is an investigation into the indescribable nature of sensory experiences such as taste. We are each trapped in our own bodies and senses, struggling to create a shared reality. When language fails us we become aware that none of us can be certain what we FEEL is the same as what anyone else feels.
Hamburger Diaries is a crowd-sourced project (made in one week) in which I asked my Facebook friends to eat a hamburger and describe what the meat tasted like. Many of my friends posted pictures and comments to my Facebook feed, I recorded video of those who met me to share a burger.
