Public food/art event 1/5, this Sunday 3-6 pm!

The dodo harvest event will be followed by another happening during the same weekend. Here the description of the event (

1/5: FERTILIZE// First happening of the food event series "5 - The dish"

“5″ is a series of food events and workshops taking place between June - November 2010 in Helsinki, each one symbolizing one step of the production process. Basic food is bread, the rest is a metaphore. The five steps consist of 1) fertilizing, 2) harvesting, 3) preparing, 4) consuming, and 5) salvaging. The basic idea is to inspire thought about culture, identity, and the objects we consume, with a shared experience of eating. Food as an ephemeral product, consumed by our very own bodies, represents an everyday experience that connects people and memories. We are what we eat – so, who are we?

If at hand, please bring a recipe for "Rieska" (Finnish flat bread) that you know from your family, friends, cookbook, or invented yourself. The first 25 recipe bringers will receive something in return. Welcome to an experimental autumnal afternoon outside!

Location: next to the cob oven at the container square, Kalasatama in Helsinki (follow the green "ranta-reitti"-markings on the floor/ check out the map here: the oven is situated close to #4)

Time: 5th of September, 3 pm- 6 pm (the evening may be continued @ Ptarmigan with a movie screening of the short film "Cities of Preferences", starting at 7 pm)

More information about the whole project can be found on its blog Welcome!
