Two days after Christmas 2010, we gathered all of our left over holiday decorations and the finest looking table settings from each of our homes and set an ornate formal dinner table in the dining room of a local McDonalds restaurant. We then invited fellow restaurant patrons to join us at the table to eat and talk in hopes of creating the same intimacy present at a family dinner amongst strangers in a public place. After one of our guests unexpectedly sang an original song into the audio recorder that we used to document the conversation, the direction of the project changed dramatically.
