The Hunger Project

This project explores ‘hunger’ in Taiwan and in the global context through higher education pedagogy. Through Ecological Art examples and hunger statistics, university students consider the access and distribution of food, as well as the question: why does the lack and the excess of food coexist?

In addition to physical hunger, students also ponder hunger of the mind and of spirit. Featured here are student responses through research, data presentation, reflective writing, as well as art creations that perform the 'hunger'. The making of these images and objects are also actions in themselves, which call attention to global contributing factors to hunger, such as education, socioeconomic gaps, and food equality.
