Food and Space  2012

Food can really trigger the imagination, says Peter Hsieh. He let his own imagination go wild and created a guidebook to fun food experiences. Have you ever tried origami animals made of food paper? Or drinking Champagne gas from a balloon? And what about straw dining? By sucking your food up from dishes hidden under the tabletop, dinner will become a whole new experience. People always enjoy eating food, but they never notice about the microspace and beauty inside food, and play with food.

In this project, I explore the space and food via several ways: cut, bake, lighting, projection and explore them under microscope. When under the microscope, I enjoy meadering through all these narrow unpredictable stretch long and unbroken natural spaces. Then I choose the red cabbage to go inside.

These are the sketches I drew for the space recombination.

I made a cabbage head for this project. It is a small intimate space for one person put his head in it. There are two mini screens, each for each eye, play two stop motions in loop I made with cabagges. When people put their heads in it, it makes them feel they are in a vacuum real vegetable space, with the cabbage smell, and truly exploring the space.
