Food For The Spirit, Adrian Piper

"Food for the Spirit consists of fourteen black and white self-portraits and an audiotape of Piper (who has a Ph.D. in philosophy) reciting passages from Immanuel Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason. It is a performative documentation of when “she became ‘obsessed’ with Kantian thought, fasting, practicing yoga, and isolating herself. Fearful that she was losing touch with the physical world...she searched for ways of corporeal reassurance” 1 (18). "
