Cal's Video

"I was inspired by the cooking show style of the piece from Cyberfeast 1, and utilized found videos of Cong You Bing coupled with my own culinary creations and instructions to create my own "how-to" guide to making Chinese style pancakes. The piece uses both the sterility of the instructions coupled with playful food "animation" to create a comical and thorough review of this food item."

  1. I love the juxtaposition of the visual rhythms of the food shape animation in the center against the repetitive beat of the recipe chant - it is hypnotic. Also, like how you work with the whole idea of cooking as a media event - broadcast to millions - with chefs as pop stars.

    Looking forward to skyping with you
