There is always a fascination with the interrelationship between food, art, and people. Especially with food from childhood. Taiwanese breakfast has been deeply missed while I am in the states. I reminisced over the ordinary days of buying dan bing(egg pancake), fan tuan(sticky rice ball), and soy milk near home before starting our day. The memories of those food turn out to be not so ordinary.
Due to the pandemic, I had the opportunity to travel back to Taiwan. Food is generally paid attention to there, but I had a hard time finding anything published about our breakfast culture. We planned a breakfast documentary trip around the country with my dad. We learned and experienced many varieties of “breakfast” from the past, and created new memories for the future. Through this trip, we got to also meet and collaborate with local Taiwanese creatives like @chouyi and @prettyniceltd on designs for the shirt. Hope to bring people closer together through the art of food, or the food of art.
