Code Kitchen



Transcend Taste is a digital exploration of how dining is an immersive experience. When people think of dining and food, their cultural and personal preferences are shown. From being a picky eater to collaborations for the betterment of the taste buds. One thing we forget at times is how this entity of object has the ability to make us wonder through both positive and negative connotations, depending on what is being discussed. In our performance/immersive installation, we will be breaking down the dining experience through different lenses. Particularly aiming at the 5 senses while reevaluating the meaning of some of our semantics towards this experience.

Through different creative coding environments in conjunction with online spaces meant for exploration, c0d3 kitchen will be showcasing the kitchen in a deconstructed format. Where obejcts and sense will be and will not be how they normally are to promote thinking. A timeless performance that depending on your mood and how you interact with the space will bring upon a different sensation every time. Should be noted, it won't necessarily be a drastic change but one that emulates the ability to feel different, even if eating the same food twice.

With Aid from the Canada Art Council & CBC , I embarked on a research/creation to create an experiential web series with different creative mediums to provide an insight on the effects of isolation : Decoding the Binary. Screened at the Toronto Webfest Festival

Decoding the Binary

Made with the Help of 4 other Artists and the CBC/Canada Council Partnership

​​​​​​​ Decoding the Binary : A look at the world through the lens of Poetry, Audiovisual, Weaving, Performance Art, coding and many other art forms to bring different viewpoints, moodpoints and thoughts during this time. 


While also inspiring many others on the different ways art can be used to invoke feelings, thoughts and memories
