The Expanding Table
The Expanding Table was a workshop / performance by Carl-Johan Skogh and Mattias Gunnarsson during Gothenburg Design Festival / HDK Open House with the focus of the materiality and possibilities of food. Ten tables, built for the occasion and each contain¬ing different stations, were lined up and the participants moved along each of the sides like in a factory line or buffet taking part of the various tasks that the tables offered. The goal of the work was both to materialize and show the extra curriculum course EAT and that the relation food + design is present at HDK. Thru an easy access process we invit¬ed the visitors to the HDK Open house to participate in a discussion about design and materiality.
