On February 24th, I joined 4,423 people for lunch as part of a global collaborative art project called The Meal.
Self-Portrait with Coconut-Curry Noodle Bowl
The project was organized by Brooklyn’s Art House Co-op. The rules were pretty simple: 1) Take a picture of yourself and your lunch at 12pm EST; 2) Create a 4 x 6 print and send it off to the Brooklyn Art Library to be part of a storefront exhibit (along with thousands of other meal photos). As a foodie and self-portrait maker, I couldn’t resist! Plus, The Meal partnered with Action Against Hunger, a stellar humanitarian organization working to end hunger around the world.
My meal was a spicy, coconut curry noodle bowl with pan-fried tofu, serranno peppers, and LOADS of turmeric for color! The place marker in the photos is Mpls St.Paul Magazine (with a story on Best Restaurants). I sent in the noodle-slurping action shot (above). Here are some outtakes from my shoot:
Can’t wait to join my lunch companions in Brooklyn next month. Stay tuned for more Art House projects; I believe I’m officially hooked.
