The Journey of the grape

This project was part of an exhibition called Keten met Eten / Food for Fun, organized by students at the Man and Activity department at Design Academy Eindhoven.

The aim of the project was to arrange an exhibition for children aged 4-8 years, to improve their awareness of food.
The event took place during 4 days and schools around Eindhoven were invited to participate.

The Journey of the grape was an interactive installation, where the child entered into a space with a screen and a box filled with grapes. The child was encouraged to take a grape from the box and eat it. When doing so, a switch triggered a stop motion movie to appear on the screen. The movie showed the journey of the grape, through the childs body as he/she ate it.

The project got very positive response from both children and tutors.

In collaboration with Marta Sif Olafsdottir.
