Students from design schools in Poland as well as from abroad are meeting at the 2nd edition of the Art Food workshops which merge cuisine and design. The outcomes of their work will be presented in Wrocław, London and New York.
The aim of the Art Food project is for the participants to create unique yet functional ceramic dishes which will then be used to demonstrate the beauty of food. Three schools are taking part in this year’s edition of the workshops: Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Art and Design in Wrocław, Central St Martin’s College in London, and the Pratt Institute in New York. The 3-week residency will be taking place in the Ćmielów Design Studio and porcelain factory and tutored by Marek Cecuła – artist, designer and pedagogue.
For the last couple of months, the participating students have been attending special design, anthropological and culinary workshops organised at their respective schools, during which they carried out research on the cultural aspects of food consumption and about how taste and the way of preparation influence food’s presentation, and vice versa.
Art Food wants to bring design outside of the school walls. Students will have an opportunity to experience the design process – from the initial concept to negotiating with the client. The workshops let the students get more insight into the world of industrial design.
The projects produced during the Art Food workshops will be presented in Wrocław on July 24, in London in September and then in New York in October.
