Déguster l’augmenté

What if we could augment our food? Would it be possible to experience a new dimension of a meal? This project is a desire to explore the potential of integrating data and storytelling in food. A proposition of expanding three desserts in a poetic way. A wedding of sound and chocolate, poetry and lollipop and animation and dessert.
