Spice Mix Super-Computer @ CultureTECH

November 21, 2013

More than a year after its construction, The Spice Mix Super-Computer is still on the road! Its latest journey was to Derry, Northern Ireland for CultureTECH 2013, a festival of digital technology, media, music and art. From September 12-14, visitors of all ages and backgrounds designed and tested their own spice mixes with the help of the Spice Mix Super-Computer. As the newest member of the Center for Genomic Gastronomy, I had the privilege of hosting the caravan and watching as visitors engaged with this new space.

The Spice Mix Super-Computer is part of the Mobile Republic, a fleet of traveling, interactive caravans, each designed by different artists and each offering a unique experience for visitors.

At CultureTECH Festival, the Mobile Republic was located in a central city square, particularly accessible to anyone passing through. From uniformed school children, to unknowing tourists, to tech industry enthusiasts, hundreds of people prototyped new spice mixes and engaged with the Spice Mix’s process of exploration.
