On February 24th at 12pm EST, join thousands of people around the world in a simultaneous global meal. Whether it's breakfast in LA or a midnight snack in Beijing, let's take a moment from our hectic lives and share it with strangers around the world. Snap a photo of yourself and your meal and mail it to us — we'll create an exhibition from these self-portraits, documenting the world's largest communal snack.Here was my contribution:
Me, eating leftover chicken fajitas while sitting on the couch watching Project Runway Allstars with my kitties.
I can't wait to see the other contributions. I wonder what everyone else was doing today at noon.
It reminds me of the project One Day on Earth, that asked people to take video and images from 10/10/10. I signed up to participate in that but forgot my camera when I went out of town for my friends' wedding that day. I WISH I had been able to participate, because it was a really fun day and totally worthy of being a part of that amazing project. I watched the trailer for it today and am totally kicking myself for having forgotten my camera that day a year and a half ago.
I really like participating in these kinds of projects. Part of it is that when you see the project you feel like a part of a larger world. The other part is a little voyeuristic, where you get a peek into other people's lives.
If you've never heard of the Art House Co-op I recommend checking it out and maybe signing up for a project or two!
