Data cuisine

Data Cuisine is an experimental research on the representation of data with culinary means. It is an initiative by data visualizer Moritz Stefaner and prozessagenten, process by art and design. Together, they are exploring ways to approach data and the stories behind it by cooking.

Data Cuisine started as the Open Data Cooking Workshop in Helsinki and continued in the Data Cuisine Workshop Barcelona.

We are interested in further editions in other cities, expressing local data with local food, with the help of a local chef. Get in touch in case you are interested!

Preparations for the Open Data Cooking Workshop

The preparations for the first Open Data Cooking workshop are in full swing, and we are very excited to see how it will turn out! It will take place in Helsinki, Sep. 15–16, 2012 — produced by Pixelache and organized by Susanne Jaschko from prozessagenten, in collaboration with data visualization expert Moritz Stefaner,  information designer and open data connaisseur Miska Knapek and culinary innovator Antti Nurkka.

The basic premise for the workshop is to explore food as a form of information expression. What if a fish soups taste is based on publicly available local fishing data? Or what a pizza would be like if it was based on Helsinki’s population mix? Hard to imagine? Look at a few reference projects we collected already to get inspired.

Especially those of us who are coming from a graphics background with your old visual variables, we are now very excited to explore the capabilities of culinary variables!

We will use this website to document the results of the workshop, so make sure to come back to check out the results!
