Food memories was my way of collecting other people’s memories of important life experiences through the food preserving method. This way life transitions could be captured, experienced and once preserved, observed again and re-lived if desired (by opening the jars and smelling, eating them, etc).
How did it work? I was invited by strangers and people I barely knew at the time to have dinner together at their home. Then they would share their memories brought by the dish with me.
