Fast Food Vs. Slow Food
For our oral history project, we used ourselves as both the subjects and researchers. In our process to compare fast food and slow food (organic), we compiled a documentary, which is shown in the videos on our Final Collaborative Project page. The original footage was 49:07 long, but we cut the video down to 45:91. The final reflections of our overall process (the last video on the Final Collaborative Project page) entailed interviewing one another to draw conclusions from our comparisons rather than referring to an expert. However, within some of the videos, reactions of food shoppers can be heard as we are searching for organic produce, which may count as an informal interview. By focusing on the reflections of the average eater, you can see the raw feelings of people intitally delving into an unfamiliar field of orgnic food, which indubitibly is the same reaction that many eaters have when first trying organic foods. We believed that this would be more useful to our primary audience (our Writing, Research, and Technology class), as there are not many students who are already purely-organic consumers. We hope that our reflections will help reveal just how accessible and friendly organic foods can be, contrary to popular belief.
