Every year, the design division at CCA hosts a Nightlife event at the California Academy of Sciences. This year, CCA proposed a Design-Lab theme which challenged participants to host interactive tables at the Nightlife Event. Tutu and I were invited by to create a participatory experience around food. Our collaborative efforts inspired us to create a speculative piece in which Nightlife guests have the opportunity to play and create a 'delight' using ingredients with unfamiliar titles, shapes, and textures. This playful exercise allowed participants to explore the ways in which our perception of food might change over time.
The success of this participatory design has led to additional collaborations with Nightlife and Don Bugito.
