Food: We Are What You Eat

Everybody knows that you are what you eat -- that what you consume doesn\'t only affect your wallet and your consciousness, but also your health and well-being. Yet what you eat also impacts the world around you, and touches us all. The food we eat influences the environment around us, the air we breathe, the water we drink, the fields we run on, our economies, governmental policies, the way we share with others, and the lives of workers and consumers alike. It\'s not just about nutrition and consumption, it\'s also about the people around you, everyday friends and invisible faraway faces without names. Every time we eat, we are sharing our meals with many many people, well beyond those sitting at our table. This month the Global Gallery invites you to create images representing the impact of what we eat; images of how you share your food with others, images of influence on the the massive world around us, images of impact on our everyday experiences, and images showing how our world is affected and changing, in positive or negative ways, because of our eating habits.
