Existential Dinner Party

We’ve all heard about combining food with other pleasurable sensory experiences like cheese and art shows, prime rib and strippers, sex and pastrami, so why not combine delicious food with a debilitating existential crisis? Can’t recall how or why this pairing came up in an electronic conversation but it did. I’ve had “acrimony and cheese” in my idea box for a while so maybe it just took seed.

The menu so far includes:
• acrimony and cheese
• cinnabons and self analysis
• deviled eggs and despair
• ennui and baked brie
• french fried fear of death
• judgement and jellied eggs
• night terrors and tapas
• paralyzing fear and fresh fruit
• regret au gratin
• self doubt and sauerkraut
• spiritual death and duck sauce
• singularity and cinnamon sticks

Pieces in progress (these are photoshop mock ups):

Ennui A Jus

The point is just about associations word play and emotional responses through the juxtaposition of unrelated subjects. I once heard you don’t stop with one great idea, you take two or more good ideas and somehow bring them together.
