TavoloWhen shall we live if not now? ” Asked Seneca in front of a table set to enjoyment of him and his friends. It is a question whose answer can be easily deluded. In fact, when? We are alive, now. At what other time can we live, and with greater satisfaction than eating supper in pleasant company?
M.F.K. Fisher, A arte de bem servir
We create spaces and environments to share meals together. Art also walks in the banquets that repeatedly are articulated in human activities that define the meaning of delicacies, its good cooking and the space where they are tasted.
Tavolo is a performative tour that serves as an interface to an approach to the issue of the philosopher quoted by MFK Fisher, providing the experience on smells and tastes of a city. It is a sensitive experience that appeals to tasting, applied in the relational space and transported to the virtual world, interacting with the mechanisms of digital broadcasting and with the online audience.
Tavolo is part of Webcooking that I include on Culinária Expansiva project, in a transversal approach that uses performance, video and other digital media. Wecooking expands the relation of performative action with the web mechanisms in a relational space.
