Interactive DinnerCon | Digital Naturalism Conference
If new flavors are created by making different combinations of ingredients, how can I make the discovery of those permutations more interactive and fun?
At Dinacon, I banded with a small group of foragers, artists, hackers, and writers curated and conducted a series of interactive feasts in Thailand called ‘DinnerCons.’ We cooked with local Thai community, foraged jungle ingredients, and exhibited the intricacies and unique flavor profiles of Thai cuisine through sculptures, design, and games. Using a big red button, an Arduino, LED lights, and 4 lines of code, we made trying different flavor combinations fun and engaging. It is our starting point for exploring how food crosses boundaries in unexpected ways.
