"20%" (2018)

Documented over a span of 6 months, “20%” is a firsthand exploration of food delivery in Boone & the cultural quandaries concerning payment. During my time as a delivery driver, I compiled empirical data, transparent opinions, and on-location photography,while on the job in an effort to pull viewers behind the wheel and experience the delivery game from a 1st person perspective, with hopes that it might change tipping habits for the better.

 

“20%” takes form in 9 Viewmaster reels used to conceptually, literally, and visually communicate a night on the job. The reels feature on-location photography from where I’ve been stiffed, details taken from the actual order, and my own tips on how the viewers should conduct themselves when receiving delivery. They’re stored in a small leather bound cover.
