Join us at NOBA on November 4th to bring your tasty imaginations to life.
We are inviting children and youth (12 – 18) to our artistic workshop that blends Artificial Intelligence with creative thinking into a delicious journey for the participants. Together, we will explore, challenge, and us popular AI tools to imagine the fantastic foods of tomorrow. First, participants will use AI to co-create and visualize fantastic imaginations of future foods. In the second stage of the workshop, each will turn their future fantasies into tangible treats as physical meals made from marzipan.
We will end the workshop with a sweet feast as we eat our AI dishes. Selected pieces will be proudly shown in the project’s final exhibition, which showcases the results of the whole project.
The “Making Fantastic Foods with AI” workshop marks the last chapter of a year-long collaboration between Vitenparken Campus Ås and the Rucka Art Foundation, Latvia. The online and onsite activities, spanning over the year, were designed by an interdisciplinary team of Norwegian and Latvian artists and experts with a keen focus on inspiring and engaging youth into imagining and shaping the uncertain futures they face. As we wrap up the project, this workshop stands as a celebration of the innovation and creativity fostered during the collaboration.
The project has been realized with the support of the European Economic Area (EEA) Grants Financial Mechanism funding period 2014 – 2021 program “Local Development, Poverty Reduction, and Cultural Cooperation” open call “Support for the Creation of Professional Art and Cultural Products for Children and Youth.”
The Anthropocene Kitchen is an artistic research project consisting of artists Stahl Stenslie (Norway) and Zane Cerpina (Latvia/Norway). They investigate the most innovative and speculative ideas about new foods within the fields of arts, design, science & technology. The project rethinks our eating traditions, challenges food taboos, and proposes new recipes for survival in times of dark ecological catastrophes. This takes the form of public food experiments, cooking performances, and discussion evenings. From Ant(i)pasti to meal-in-a-pill and cooking the last dragon on the earth, Anthropocene Kitchen is a hands-on investigation of future cuisine.
