The majority of people in America mindlessly shove food into their mouths without thinking about what they are eating. To explore this idea, I experimented with how the senses could be used to make people more aware, and perhaps heighten their eating experience.
I decided to pair specific foods with sounds that would amplify their tastes and textures. In doing so, I wanted to create awareness of the physical sensation one feels when eating. The act of combining different foods with sounds allows one to become hyper-aware of each of the foods' various properties.
