Interactive Sonic Dining Sessions


In collaboration with Fedde ten Berge and Asli Hatipoglu

In order to re-think how to enhance connectedness during everyday rituals by digital technology, within the collaboration Klankborden, a series of performative events explore alternative ways for social interacti- ons around the dining table, with a special attention to sound and listening.

All tableware items are crafted individually by hand and equipped with hidden audio tools (sensors, speakers and contact microphones) to facilitate a rich collection of sounds, based on the sonic input of tactile materials.
