It’s been a busy month for Data Cuisine!
Back in Berlin, we also tried out a new twist to the Data Cuisine idea: a participatory data cuisine event for bloggers, sponsored by Schott Ceran. Together with Fingerfood Berlin and Fransisca Tan, we came up with dish recipes in advance, but prepared the meals together with the participants.
Data Cuisine explores food as a means of communication and information expression.
In our Data Cuisine workshops, we team up with a local chef and together with pur participants, try to find novel dishes which can represent locally relevant data in a meaningful, intriguing way. Up to now, we have done workshops in Helsinki, Barcelona, Leeuwarden, Basel, and Berlin.
Maybe your city could be next? We are always interested in further editions — get in touch in case you are interested!
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!
