I have to admit I did a good bit of flip-flopping around about my digital artefact. At the beginning of the semester I thought I knew what I wanted to look at; the way that Japan more or less stole aspects of American culture to make it their own (Denim/ Workwear, Cuisine, Jazz… etc.). It was a matter that I had looked into in previous subjects, but the more I considered the assignment at hand the more I knew I needed to move towards a different topic.
That brought me to the humble instant noodles.
Noodles… Asia… Great, how very original. I get it, it doesn’t seem like a massive leap towards any real cultural experience or immersion, but I think in some ways that’s the point I’m trying to make. A true Asian experience (at least culinary) doesn’t have to be this far reaching thing, but is readily available.
