The Future Foods expo at Fooddock, during which students presented their views on the future of food, received a lot of positive responses from visitors. The installations offered an interesting glimpse into what might be the future of food. From ordering it, to consuming it.
Some of the visitors’ favorites of the expo included The Hunger Games, an installation in which visitors took a seat at a dining table that would hide their food. Diners had to collaboratively solve a puzzle by picking up their cutlery before they could enjoy their food. With this installation the students were curious what sort of new social interactions could emerge at the dining table.
Ørbit had two diners relive their first date, by having them take a seat at a table for two. The installation featured a story, supplemented by abstract visuals that enhanced the taste of spherified cocktails. The installation aimed to explore interactions between auditory, visual, gustatory and contextual factors in the experience of taste.
