An Edinburgh Tool Library project
A collaboration between the Edinburgh Tool Library and artist Morvern Odling
Fork in the Road is recruiting volunteers for our Summer 2018 projects!
Fork In The Road is a creative research project exploring the relationships between community and food – we’re re-imagining where kitchens can be found in Edinburgh!
This project came to life in Madrid in 2015, where Morvern Odling, Yannick Roels and Suraia Abud came together at design futures event Interactivos at the Media-Lab Prado. The images below are of the original units which were designed and made at that event.
These mobile units are towed by bikes, and will be turning up in different community spaces to engage people in their environment; through meals, workshops and culinary bicycling adventures.
Coming Soon – The Plans!
This is an open source project and all of the designs and knowledge from the community engagement discussions will be made available under its open source licence. On the 29th and 30th of July 2017 co-design workshops were held to create a second iteration of the original designs made in Madrid in 2015. These new plans have been designed for Edinburgh’s environment and communities, influenced by the knowledge gained from the co-design event.
We had a great time debuting the kitchen units at our Tool Story exhibition; we met lots of lovely folks and shared soup and bread with faces both familiar and new. A huge thanks to everyone who made it on the day and who came along while the exhibition was on! Here are a few photographs of the event and a short video introducing the day.
