How can object-related boundaries in the process of eating first be made visible, gradually overcome and finally strengthen the social structure of eating through interaction?

It begins with panels of fabric which can be unfolded to various lengths thus defining a distance between the individuals involved. Two people at a time are connected to each other and set the fabric in motion. Light bamboo bowls glide from one to the other, transporting aromas and tastes, becoming the object of interaction. The scene can be extended to an unlimited number of people and spread in public space. An intervention that reinterprets routines of movement, sets off an unorthodox coexistence, and breaks up cultural conventions in order to create new playful sequences during a joined meal.

`A contemporary strategy for food change scenarios could be to try out the future of the table community - as an alternative to warlike means - not only with good food, but consciously with playful means.┬┤ Harald Lemke

We are two students studying textile- and surface design and one studying product design at Wei├čensee School of Art in Berlin. We were working together in this year's GreenLab project `Food In The Time Of Corona┬┤, merging a variety of background knowledge into one project. We share the interest of social aspects in design and interactions that are caused by materiality. Our creative work involves the expression of socio-cultural topics using design as a connecting medium.
