We can identify the meaning of an image in 13 milliseconds. Photographic images are the visual communication currency of our time, and influence us because of the psychological associations we have with with the content. I’m playing with the relative power of images and how we “digest” them by making them literally edible. I’m also playing with the common practice of mistaking the image for the actual thing it represents. I surveyed friends on social media as to what images are emotional triggers for them - hospitals, white power rallies, homeless shelters, cancer, exhaust pipes, guns, the twin towers, etc. I do a Google image search for the word and then choose the image that when cropped seems to have the most visual interest. The image is then printed with (FDA-approved) edible ink onto edible paper made of potato starch. During the exhibition I print out two copies of the image and I eat the image with the person who has told me their trigger. This is a play on religious communion and also the idea in modern psychology (exposure therapy) that when you expose yourself to emotional triggers repeatedly in a safe environment they lose their power to affect you.
