video, website, vinyl wrap billboard 64x8 ft.
As part of the fabLES Public Art project produced by FABnyc, Feed Me a Story created a billboard consisting of food stories gathered on the Lower East Side and shared with the public through an interactive video installation. Located in the First Street Art Park, each dish reflects a portrait of the Lower East Side. At LES’s LaGuardia Senior Center the cooks share stories of their families and heritages as they make their dishes. Going to the website one can find the recipes for each dish, as well as a video of it being prepared. Since 2012, Feed Me a Story is an on-going collaborative social engagement project made up of Laura Nova and Theresa Loong, that encourages the sharing of secret family recipes.
