A performative dinner party.
An interactive exploration of sustenance and our fantasies about its sources and destinations. It will be visible to the visiting art crawlers as both a projection on the building and through conveniet windows.
The first supper begins a series of periodic experimental dinners. Food alchemy and advanced social enginnering are the main focuses of these events.
While participants dine on dishes prepared specifically to sustain a moment of flavor in a 3 dimensional form, their preferences and coordinated efforts to consume the meal are relayed to an audience outside the dining room in the form of a 3d simulated cube. The contents of this cube are samples of the dinner table (a light table) imaged periodincally to give yet another 3 dimensional view, but this one reveals the visual changes going on atop the table, Most likely revealing how popular certain dishes are.
