context of the installation from the artist:

so the way i get to know people is through conversations. long wandering conversations about anything and everything. and i’m not really good at small talk. i want to share how i feel and be in a space where whoever i am with feels they can do the same. i’m better in small groups and in a living room or in the corner of a bar or in a kitchen… i love a good kitchen conversation.
so imagine this… you’ve met a new friend, they invite you over to their place for food. you wander around their living room touching their Vinyl collection and book covers. and you’re in the kitchen, some chai or wine is on the table, you share stories back and forth while you slice tomatoes and fry up something delicious. music plays in the background.
i don’t think it’s possible really to know how someone feels but when i sit and share stories with someone, break bread with them, see and touch and live in their space for a little bit i feel like i can put myself in their shoes a little bit.
and that’s what this installation is. multi-sensory portraits of interesting people i’ve met inviting you to sit and listen and share in the stories these amazing people have generously chosen to share and use all your senses.
