Deconstructing Recipes and Formulas
.
Presenting a delectably formulated selection of publications surrounding the use of recipes and formulas:

Some of the earliest recipes can be found in the form of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs preserved in their pictorial form, depicting the preparation of food. These hieroglyphs present us with details on gathering ingredients and the processes employed in the production of the food. While much is still left to interpretation, including the outcome, the recipe gives us a look at the thinking and creativity of a culture and society that existed thousands of years ago.

What the following publications present to us are ways in which we can evaluate the recording of recipes and formulas, and contemplate their complexities. Be it intentional or otherwise, a recipe or formula tells us much about its user/creator in relation to their role in society, history, and their cultural background. Such information can only be found with the use, deconstruction, and reconstruction of formulas and recipes, rather than soley in the outcomes they seek to create.

« This inaugural issue of te magazine adopts Ye Wuji's "The Lost Society" as the central theme. The term "lost" means ephemeral silence and enfeeblement rather than disappearance and extinction. This means that many cultures only dissipated temporarily, and some are metamorphosized. Food happens to witness this transition, and the word "society" refers to a collective destiny. In this issue, we invited 13 creative practitioners of different disciplines — to bring in and reflect upon their respective expertise, knowledge system and research trajectories from and in anthropology, sociology, and contemporary art — to explore food as a multi-faceted intricacy, at the same time reconstruct the relationship between food and geography. »

With a closer look at these recipes you will uncover a critical work of writing on the history of surveillance through a feminist and postcolonial lens. In using recipes as a code or formula with which to disseminate her body of work, Amy Wu allows you to quite literally consume a critical analysis in an analogue format, resuscitating old methods of sharing otherwise censored texts.

The Kinship Method
The Kinship Method
$45.00
As an experimental design project, The Kinship Method is an example of the surprising ways in which a formula can produce many unique outcomes, as it is built upon. Five designers design a chair and pass on 20-40% of their design to the next designer to create a new chair. The outcome is always a chair but the method employed changes, as does the designer’s work. Does this formula invite diverse outcomes or create conformity?
