I eat rice my dear(2023)

I eat rice my dear (2023) – 8 Channel Sound Installation (Speakers, Staple foods from different countries, 8-Channel low-frequency composition)

“I don’t drink coffee, I drink tea my dear”, these words appear in the song “Englishman in New York” by Sting. The text refers to the cultural differences between England and America, because tea is considered an English cultural asset and is traditionally more important than coffee.
According to the song, drinking tea in the USA makes you a stranger and the difference in culture and thinking becomes clear through the one drink. The title of the sound installation “I eat rice my dear” is a parody of this song. It expresses cultural differences and individual preferences through staple foods eaten in various countries. These are made to vibrate by low-frequency frequencies and thus produce sounds themselves. Also my personal experiences as a foreigner in a European country and trying to adapt to the life and culture of the place are reinterpreted through sound and food.
