Has The Quantified Self Movement Changed What We Eat?
PSFK chats with founders and food artists Kat Popeil and Sam Kim of 'Something I Ate,' about their latest event and how the current heightened awareness surrounding food is changing how we consume.
At the end of February, PSFK had the opportunity to attend the latest installment of Something I Ate, an event series that explores the relationship between food and art by inviting artists to document a week of personal eating and bring it to life through new works. These creations in turn inspire a special menu that is prepared and served at the culminating event, highlighting local, seasonal ingredients, and keeping people coming back for more.
Following up on our previous interview, PSFK once again caught up with co-founders Kat Popiel, founder of the online food magazine On Plate, Still Hungry, and Sam Kim of SkimKim Foods to dig a little deeper into the inspiration driving the series, what they’ve learned and where they’re headed next.
