Neo-Futurist Dinners is a new programme line at Mediamatic, in which the world of food, art and science are brought together. During these gastronomical experiences, you will be engulfed in a multi-sensory dinner scene, being served food in all colours and shapes in the most unexpected ways.
For the first edition, Margriet Craens joins forces with Chef Watson and invite you to taste the results of this thoughtful collaboration, resulting in a five-course dinner (drinks included). During the dinner, Chef Watson will gladly share information about the meals and you can also ask it whatever comes to your mind. It will be an evening that is algorithmic seasoned for man and cyborg alike!
Margriet Craens is a multi-disciplinary artist and writer based in Eindhoven, experimenting with art, design, food, and culture. Margriet is one of the creative minds behind the 70% BAR and The Fat Pony, where she explored the boundaries and intersections between the restaurant and art world.
Chef Watson is an artificial-intelligence cooking app by I.B.M. (International Business Machines Corporation), the American multinational technology company that manufactures hardware, middleware and software. The app allows you to create unconventional recipes based on scientific reasoning.
Chef Watson takes good care of its guests. If you have questions or want to inform us about allergies, send an e-mail to: email@example.com.
