If only this was about food is a work of social confession about inherent desires, focusing on its relationship with compulsion. The whole process asserts itself as a spontaneous experience that resembles the very uncontrollable side of desire. Everything is about food, eating, consuming and compromising but also about everything else not mentioned. It seeks its own induction by the public, presenting the work in the limbo between conscience and the desire for naivety.
