As the first and most important meal of the day, we are interested in examining the differences of what Breakfast is to an individual. Between the US and the UK, there are many similar breakfast foods, yet they are often prepared differently. Similarly, within the same country, breakfast traditions will vary greatly from region to region.
This project aims to examine both the differences and similarities of breakfast as well as create a creative platform for dialog and discovery.
Frukost is a series of four split images created live on zoom.
The zoom call took place at a nominally agreed "breakfast" time between England and Sweden.
Both the artist and friend prepared a breakfast traditional to their country and joined the call for breakfast (virtually) together.
