Face Quzi faces!

Quzi (rice and meat)

Eid Al-Fitr at Ayesha’s house 

            During Eid al-Fitr, a holiday celebrating the end of Ramadan, families gather together, sit around on the floor and share Quzi. In my virtual trip to the UAE, I had the full experience of cooking and eating this traditional dish through photos and detailed videos provided by my partner. In this work, my imagined tactile experiences are reinterpreted through a collage. Various images, from paper pieces to wooden beads turn into graphic elements representing the ingredients. Through the digital Quzi Meal-Kit, users can also build their own Quzi face as a gift wishing kind wishes to someone far away. Quzi faces, which are made following the recipe, spread messages of warmth and togetherness, reflecting the spirit of this celebration.

You can download the Meal Kit and make your own Quzi face here.
