The project is documented entirely on it’s own website: Caffeinated
After compiling our research, Keren, Ali and I decided to create a piece that embodied the communality as well as uniqueness of all our cafe experiences. We used video and sound to document and then create our work. Our series of videos convey Parisian coffee culture through different perceptions of time, experience, and environment. The fast-paced clips are ironic as they contradict the typical leisurely coffee experience in Paris. The audio, which plays in real time, is a comical conversation that encapsulates the American in Paris scenario and the resulting cultural differences, judgments, and insecurities.
