How sugar is deeply involved in our habits/memories  

From mapping the places where I buy food or eat in Eindhoven, I then researched subjects like comfort food, our unconscious addiction to sugar and in the end our attachment to it. I translated those data graphically. Sugar is an important component of our lives, especially to regulate the mood, but it can also be our worst enemy. It is a matter of quantity. The smallest quantity of a really qualitative and meaningful food can completely fill you up, on the physical but also on the emotional side. Proof with the “Madeleine de Proust” phenomenon .
