2014 - Food as a Lens: Developing Methods for Collaborative
Practice and Community Engagement

+

Food acts as a universal language and in its essence it is about the moment of connection between individuals and disparate elements. In this inquiry, food is used as a lens to examine both collaborative tools and processes within art and design and community engagement. The research occurs primarily in the studio, but also engages the community through workshops. The first was held at an international bi-annual design conference, Tasmeem, Doha in March 2013. Together, with a group of five individuals we looked at the exploration of fusion food in a group dynamic. The second workshop was held at Design Inquiry in June 2013 on Vinalhaven Island in Maine. A series of kitchen tools were made for use during the weeklong conference.
