Title Sit, Eat, Drink, Talk, Laugh – Dining and Mixed Media
Author(s) Sigurjonsdottir, Edda Kristin
Date 2009
English abstract
Sit, Eat, Drink, Talk, Laugh – Dining and Mixed Media, is an exploratory study of qualities in everyday life and challenges people to enjoy the qualities of mundanity. Seeking inspiration in ethnographic studies, field work was conducted in domestic settings, returning an extensive body of material to work from. The study challenges people to absorb the moment, reflect and enjoy, rather than pacing through a lifetime, with a constant focus on the future instead of the present. This work takes a starting point in food and dining as a social activity, where interactive sound and a reference to online social media is explored through two interventions. The results of these are discussed with central findings around food and dining in the area of sociology, the use of sound in ambient computing and on a higher level around the topic of temporality.
