[Dancing Table]

Feast Automata Project for Fortnum&Maison, 2013

 

 

A moving display of dancing tea table with paper flowers, inspired by the manner of  Korean traditional court banquet.

The brief was 'Feast Automata'. It is for getting inspired by old 'automata' which include 16th century physical robot systems and performing clocks, and make something new related to food. (as it is collaboration project for Fortnum&Maison)I concentrated on the image and stories. A 'feast' remind me a grand, formal party and this automatically remind me the scene of court banquet I saw in historic film. I tried to express the festive image in modest display.
