Digitized Food

everyday food as digital artefacts

This graphic series is an excerpt of a comprehensive dataset of my food intake. I created the dataset by capturing every item of food that I ate during 44 days in summer 2015. For the captures I used the smartphone app Seene, which allows to take semi-3D shots. The files of single food items were loaded into openFrameworks and were manipulated, mainly by changing the point of view on the imperfect 3D scans.

This way, everyday food is extracted out of its natural context and is turned into abstract, digital artefacts. The project opposes classical, high glamour food photography and trends like #foodporn, where only specially prepared food is considered and uploaded for likes and making other people jealous.

These are the first results of a still ongoing analysis of the dataset. The whole dataset can be viewed here.
