Co-creation workshop that explores the physical and chemical properties of edible materials to understand its language.
We conceived food as a manageable element, subject to physical transformations. Exploring its organic characteristics, playing with foods to discover the response of each element to physic and chemical stimuli.
The session is meant to change our bias towards ingredients achieving an objective perspective of them. This is the only way to open to a new world of functionalities of foods and its waste.
From techno-emotional techniques to sensory design experiences we will decompose an ingredient per group. We generate a space to mix, knead, cook, freeze or even smash foods not according to their expectation to be eaten but their properties as materials. Braking with our expectations, clarifying our curiosity.
Once its defined, we proceed to the creative part. We will proceed to generate an edible result not conditioned only by the predefined standards of our comfort ways of cooking.
Each student came up with edible products as clothing, furniture or event art sculptures.
The workshop has made in companies and institutions as Elisava in collaboration of the creative cheff Eduard Baviera.
