Project By Tinu Verghis

Food is a gateway for defining culture. In traditional Indian culture, food was eaten as a form of worship. A portion of the food from the plate was offered to the gods before consumption. Using the hands to eat, with the 5 fingers touching each other, is a Yogic mudra called Samana mudra, which also activates the production of digestive juices in the stomach. Much of this traditional knowledge is disappearing with the passage of time. I am interested in using the production and consumption of food as an approachable way to activate our social imagination and to redefine the way we consume food, inspiring people to inhabit the world in a better way.
