Day Six - Fri 10 June, 2016 | Sensory Experience

Thoughts from our Co-convenors, David Cross and Claire Doherty:

Today was about food. About how senses other than vision determine our understanding. We wanted to focus on how the market creates a certain sensibility for people who experience the it. What is the market’s haptic experience.

It was about how we might be able to heighten an experience of non-visual aspects within the market through a certain type of interaction with it.

“We’ve been thinking about alchemy and energy in the market, and about time because there are truly idiosyncratic rhythms within the market. “ – Chief Curator Natalie King

“The concept of time in a kitchen is all about hospitality. My time as the chef doesn’t matter, it’s all about you, the diner. If you’re in a hurry then we are, if you want to relax for hours then we follow that. We don’t know until we’re there.” – Peter Gunn
