Meanwhile, neuroscience and ethnography both provide evidence that the senses, however defined, form an integrated sensory system; one “sense” rarely acts alone.

Cold comfort: What does the inside of your fridge say about you?

Cold comfort: What does the inside of your fridge say about you? | Ethnographic research | Scoop.it
French gastronome Anthelme Brillat-Savarin wrote, 'Tell me what you eat and I will tell you what you are,' a philosophy photographer Mark Menjivar has explored to fascinating effect in his photo series of open fridges, 'You Are What You Eat.'
Nhung Nguyen's insight:

In some cases, Menjivar returned and photographed fridges four years after the initial shot, finding their contents much changed.

Many of the images are thought-provoking, piquing curiosity about the lives of the people whose food they contain. 

Others, especially the more empty ones, are slightly sad, especially with the small amount of information Menjivar has provided about the number of people in a household and their jobs or income.
