Can food be a medium? What is the taste of data?

The Data Cuisine Workshop is an experimental investigation on the representation of data with culinary means, or — if you like — edible diagrams. It is an initiative by prozessagenten, process by art and design with data visualization expert Moritz Stefaner.

We research ways to represent local open data in local food, through its inherent qualities such as color, form, texture, smell, taste, nutrition, origin etc.

The workshop is a collaborative research experience, blurring the boundaries between teachers and participants, data and food. At its end, an local data menu is created and publicly tasted.

Up to now, we have done workshops in Helsinki, Barcelona, LeeuwardenBasel, BerlinGembloux, Belgium and Boston and have been awarded Gold at IIB Awards 2016.

See all the beautiful dishes that were created!

Maybe your city could be next? We are always interested in further editions — get in touch in case you are interested!
