This project began as a class assignment in which the assignment was "Six Degrees", to be interpreted as narrowly or widely as desired. As I wandered down the aisle of the supermarket, the thought came to me to buy six pints of ice cream, with no further inspiration than that at the moment. I thought, I could ate one pint of ice cream every night for six nights and then take my portrait each night, or maybe make a different sundae every night and photograph it with different place settings. However, the former was ruled out due to self-preservation, and the latter was nixed because it seemed boring. Eventually it occurred to me that there were so many issues of concern to me in the world that I should somehow incorporate these social troubles. And so, "Flavor of the Day" was born. The flavors, as reflected in the sign above are a meditation on the many important issues we face, delivered in a way that hopefully creates a dialogue at least internally, and is a more palatable and less threatening mode of conveyance.
