This page is five kids’ collaborative work – it is Our Tragic Project for our Tragedy module.

Welcome to eatair.wordpress.com, whose name derives from a grammatical variation of “Eating Air”, the title of a Kelvin Tong film.

Consumption here is configured as an attempt to devour, absorb, and internalise food – that which fills and nourishes.
