COOKING > A MODERN STONE AGE
As a call to get back to the basics, this nomadic kitchen doesn’t use any technology but properties of stones. I developed it in two scales : the domestic and the public.
See the complete academic and spatial research here.
The domestic is a combination of 4 stones (granite, obsidian, anthracite, calcium carbide) wrapped in a linen piece of fabric.
My body is my absolute domestic space so I deleted all the rest, as an act of dispossession and a first step of decolonization. It’s a set of habits and rituals I develop to create a moment.
As a paradise, the public kitchen is an island surrounded by fences. It captures you and floats away, conceding a real break out of the tyranny of immediacy. You find freedom while being imprisoned.
You don’t know how long and where you’re gonna get out. The master of ceremony cooks for you and shows you how to listen to the stones.
