My Food Valentine

Yaminie Patodia

A Collective Storytelling platform for people to express their love for food in form of love-letters.

Inspite of the plethora of food-related communities on the web, there isn't one that brings out the warm, fuzzy feeling that food is all about.

This projects aims to discover intimate relationship people have with food. The user submissions are in form of love letters written directly to the food they love. Love letter is used as a form for user submissions in the hope that the exercise would lead them to focus on more abstract reasons for loving the food - childhood memories, special associations and feelings that the food evokes.

A web based collective storytelling project.
