Supperbreakfast (2011) with artists Kaisa Lipponen, Rina Liddle and György Gáti.

Relations over the seas cause need to be in contact somehow – now we are mostly in connection through technology. In the World Wide Web, among the collections of individuals, new friendships sprout to become a part of our everyday life. Closeness with people we have never met. A vegetarian in Finland chooses ingredients for the meal from a variety of food cultures. Food travels, people travel, messages travel.

One organism happened to come up with fire, cooked food at that fire, created a community around that food, got together because of that community. At House Games 2011 we gather around to eat together without meeting at all. We do still have the fire – the light of the computer.
