The Crowded Table

Residency at PO Box Collective, Rogers Park, Chicago, IL

At the dinner table every interaction and conversation leaves a mark, every guest leaves an impression. More than our bodies are nourished at the table: familial well being, individual mental health. This is where bonds are formed, identities are shaped, family arguments are had, decisions are made, important news is shared, and everyday happenings are celebrated. How do we connect as family (chosen, biological or otherwise)? What prevents us from connecting? How can we strengthen our connections? What makes a meal? What is your favorite meal? What feeling does it evoke? What colors, smells, textures does it have?
