Participants are encouraged to reflect on the history of food in this region or their personal relationships, experiences, and associations with food, and to use those ideas as inspiration for creating digital 3D designs in Tinkercad. Participants can generate new designs from scratch or choose an object from a library of images created by artist Corinne Takara and manipulate the form from there.
Following the participatory workshops, a selection of designs will be printed in three dimensions using a plant-based filament that is 100% compostable and biodegradable. The resulting sculptures will then be integrated into an exhibition at the de Saisset Museum.

Price: FREEHidden Heroes: The Genius of Everyday ThingsÂ â€“ We use them every day. They influence our lives. They number in the billions. They are so common that we rarely even think about them: the â€œHidden Heroesâ€ of everyday life. Be it a dowel, a tea bag or a zipper, these objects are classics. Typically based on an idea that was both simple and ingenious, they have often remained essentially unaltered for decades. Due to their constancy, efficient use of materials and great utility, they are the utmost examples of sustainability and functional aesthetics. This exhibition presents 36 of these everyday classics, tells about their history, and demonstrates the enormous significance they have today, both conceptually and economically.
