Revealing everyday rituals through the act of eating carefully

Part documentary, part accidental psychological experiment, eating carefully is a series of videos documenting one girl’s peculiar eating habits. The project explores the little worlds we create in our daily rituals and the quiet rules we make within them.

The project inadvertently triggered intense feelings among its viewers: some found it exciting, others found it soothing, others felt extremely anxious. Some even said it made them mad, pained and feel like yelling. As one viewer put it: “I think you can figure out what kind of person you are by whether this makes you anxious or calm to watch.”

The project also appeared in The Morning News’s Tumblr of the Day and Bon App├ętit. There’s also that thread on the ASMR subreddit.
