Eating Together


by Justin Zhuang and Sheere Ng


To eat together conjures up images of people gathered happily for a hearty meal. But sharing food is more than that. A couple having lunch over a video conference call, residents dining at their neighbourhood kopitiam, and consumers across the globe eating from the same food sources are just some examples of how the world eats together today. These gatherings of people across differences — geographical, cultural, personal, etc — are all mediated by design.

Eating Together examines these objects, systems, and spaces to reflect upon how we share food as consumers, with family and friends, in the public, and even alone in our increasingly connected world. Far from a state of bliss, eating together serves up issues that takes time to digest.
