Sobremesa is a video installation that explores culture and its role in forming our notions of family. The Spanish term "sobremesa" refers to the Latin tradition of remaining at the table to linger over an evening meal. Four distinct narratives are projected onto individual plates attempting to recreate the complex social space that is the family table. Visitors serve as participants as they are invited to sit and take in the multiple voices.
