The rally cry from dinner tables is to "Eat your vegetables!" Food is fuel to the body; vegetables and protein are wholesome and healthy. However, when senses are decoupled from one another, familiar and trusted food can be used to create feelings of unease and distress. For example, Hitchcock utilized melons and chocolate for special effects in the famous shower scene from Pyscho.. The tactile sensation of peeled grapes is an eerie, unnerving staple of childhood haunted houses . Sounds created by something even as virtuous as a carrot or a steak hitting a hot grill can cause us to cringe. Inspired by the ascetics and sounds of 1970s Giallo films, the images in this series invoke that disquietude.
