Have You Eaten Yet?

(你吃了吗?)

This project was produced by Team Hotpot! at the Centre for Digital Media in the fall of 2019. As a part of the Museum of Vancouver's A Seat at the Table exhibition, Have You Eaten Yet? focuses on the myriad of Chinese dialects speaking a common phrase, "你吃了吗?", which translates to "Have you eaten yet?"

Have You Eaten Yet? incorporates an interactive map that showcases not only all 34 originating regions of each dialect, but also some of their most famous dishes in beautiful illustrations.

Since its launch, the A Seat at the Table exhibition has been awarded a Public History Prize by the Canadian Historical Association.

The exhibition is on display at the MOV until March 2023. Go visit!
