Created by Daniels Faculty student Siobhan Sweeny, this film project was part of the thesis prep portion of a research option studio taught by Associate Professor John Shnier in the winter semester of 2015.
In Siobhan’s words, “My short film explores food culture and it’s impact on space. The distribution of food has fundamentally changed from purely utilitarian to a dialogue between people, their city, and their food. The event of food is having a physical, aesthetic impact. I am interested in the immersive quality of food that leaves a city with culturization, snobbery, goodness, polarization, all in flux, and how this manifests itself in architecture.”
