Sammys is a project that comes together at the interesction of food and identity. We have been investigating, creating, and documenting the sandwich intake of a variety of individuals. We have involved people with drastic backgrounds, careers, and identities. The purpose of this project is to show a parallel representation of who we are by what we eat.
In this chaotic climate, we may be led to think the world is divided, that rifts between people and cultures cannot be bridged. They want us to think we are split apart by everything that surrounds us. Yet, food is, and has always been, a vehicle to unite people, to overcome differences and share cultures and customs. We hope, with this project, to intersect identities that may seemingly, have nothing in common if not for a favorite sandwich. In doing this we highlight the nuances and complex identities through the simplicity found in the layers in between two slices of bread.
