The series ‘Fast Food’ (2004 – Present) tracks the visual imprint made by the American fast food restaurant on our cultural landscape. These are unsentimental spaces created through corporate analysis of demographics, traffic flow and consumer desire. Yet the spaces have become a familiar comfort to us, quasi-public places experienced widely across common divisions of geography, race and class. The act of eating is pleasurable and intimate, even in these created consumer spaces. When they close, their transformation to urban relic is fast and impersonal, without even a semblance of corporate procedure – often, hand written notes are posted, interiors are disheveled, lights are left on.
