Food tasting — Potential diversity of Japanese food: 21 September

On August 31 Yurie Hama, owner of café Kikusen and Wataru Adachi from LYCKA Japan & Sweden held a Food Tasting event outside the East Asian Museum.

People could discover how different ingredients in a Japanese meal.

“A fundamental aspect of Japanese cuisine is its ability to explore the possibilities and exploit the potential of a small number of basic elements which are then turned into a large variety of another element. As an example, a soybean breaks down into Edamame, tofu, miso and soy sauce … Each offspring has a unique taste which sometimes makes us forget that they come from one element.”

If you missed the event, it will take place this Sunday, September 21, again at the same spot.

You Are Here – Test Flight

On August 27 Pomme Van Hoof held an intergalactic travel advice installation on Mariatorget in Stockholm. By involving the public she offered an artisitc experience based on people’s choices. Pomme wanted us to “explore our cosmic neighborhood in our minds, allowing us to create our own imagery of how a journey into space might be like.

Through a fictive service, offering personal intergalactic travel advice, we can start to humanise space, make sense of its mind-blowing distances, and begin to see ourselves as part of the larger cosmos.”

You Are Here is developed under initiative of Museum of Architecture and Design (MAO) and the Biennial of Design (BIO50). The final version will be presented 18.09 – 07.12.2014 in Ljubljana Slovenia.
