Joy of Baking
Stretch understanding of Food
Have a serious gaze at cinnamon rolls


The project is about baking and experience.
 

This is an activity that invites people to ‘taste’ a cinnamon roll by going through the making processes of cinnamon rolls.

The making processes had been deconstructed and transformed into different items based on the original making process as well as the intention of guiding people to receive specific feelings in designed approaches.


These daily use items or video of mundane behaviours which represent each process would create interactions and prompt reflections of the relationship between the eater and the food.
This project catalyses people’s imagination by the sensory substituted designs which base on augmenting simple sensation or sentiment to alter the cognitive navigation of the norm.



Sensory Experience of Baking..

Do you Know how flour sounds like and it can fly?

Look at the white fog rises when the flour drops ...

Feel the texture when twisting off the lid of the milk bottle...

Listen to the broken air bubble from the dough...

Smell the prickly scent of the live creature, yeast...

The oven is so passionate in giving you warm hugs...

Sugars are really noisy when they are jumping into the warm milk pool...

The dough smells like that they are sweating after they work out with you...


Mindful Design This is a cinnamon yoga...

The signals of chosen features from the performative objects and performance had changed people’s behaviours

and furthermore,

it facilitate the  mindful awareness...

people become more attentive to their physical and symbolic actions...

Sensory Substitution

To use one sense as a replacement or stimulus for another missing or inconspicuous sensory perception...

This project catalyses people’s imagination by the sensory substituted designs which base on augmenting simple

sensation or sentiment to alter the cognitive navigation of the norm...
