Exhibiting at PixelPop Festival 2020:
Hot Pot For One
Rachel Li, Qin Yin - Brooklyn, New York and Beijing, China
You are alone on a cold Christmas night, stuck at home, in a foreign country. You get through it by cooking a hot dish intended for six people. Hot Pot For One is about the bittersweet experience of making hot pot for yourself. It is inspired by the designers’ experiences as international students living in an unfamiliar environment far away from friends and family, who seeks comfort in making food from home.
