taste the abstract

The goal was to transform theses into taste experiences. Eating/tasting is used as a tool to internalise a theoretical piece of work into a physical experience. The main focus here was on the taste and how this correlates with the written thesis. As a participant you have the chance to discuss the tastes and interpret the experience in relation to the abstracts of the theses. An open, free associative reflection, similar to a wine tasting, took place, with the redigesting of knowledge on the basis of the experience.


Each taste was formed according to predefined artistic parameters, and the same methodical procedure was applied to all theses. As the abstract of any project should give an overview - a taste so to speak - of the entire project, from the initial question through to the final conclusion, each taste experience here also reflects and identifies itself directly with the abstract of each thesis.
