Our entire friendship is based almost solely around food

Deriving inspiration from Mukbang, Our entire friendship is based almost solely around food explores the themes of communication, language, and the intimacy of communal consumption. Through the editing process that subverts the stereotypical internet broadcast genre of South Korean “eating broadcasts”, this video project brings to light a comforting silence in the ritual of a shared meal. The voyeuristic gaze is negated in the process and a connection between participants is highlighted.
