Hard to Ingest, video

This video creates a dialogue confronting issues of self-image and self-esteem as influenced by the dominating mainstream culture. Through the use of found objects and language, a young woman creates a message with saltine crackers and black cake icing that comments not only on the act of consumption, but also on how one is mentally and emotionally affected by what is actually being consumed.
