To be efficient, people try to simplify everything, even their diet. Fast-food has been produced under this kind of fast-paced lifestyle. In fact, people don't even notice that they already redefined the meaning of "food" itself while they naturally adapt to this kind of culture.

Redefined fast-food by slowing it down, add friction between people and food through redesigning iconic fast-food packaging.

求签 qiúqiān is a fortune telling practice that originated in China in which the querent (person asking the question) requests answers from a sacred oracle lot. The practice is often performed in a Taoist or Buddhist temple in front of an altar.
