The food I ate

Video work

R. Mond [Switzerland]


A monthly chart of everything the artist ate during a particular month is shown with his monthly self-portrait in this video. The artist has been recording everything he ate since 1975. Pairing his food intake with his portrait suggests that what he ate makes who he is. For example, all the mayonnaise he has eaten in 38 years weighs more than he does. The work offers a new perspective on food.
