Cheese Computing | 01SJ
Cheese Computing is a speculative design project that explores the possibilities at the intersection of sensing, computational media and cheese. As a living thing, cheese is a dynamic object. It exists in a constant state of change as bacteria and molds grow in response to contingent environmental conditions, ever-shifting its taste, appearance and identity. This on-going development of a cheese can be tracked with simple sensing technologies, producing an abundance of data — of a kind and quality unique not only to the cheese making process, but also to each kind of cheese. Can we imagine integrating cheese into computational systems as data-generating objects or as part of the circuitry? How can sensing and robotics aid cheese production? What are the possible uses of data from a cheese object? Could we imagine a world where cheese becomes a valuable commodity due to the data it generates and the cheese maker replaces the mathematician and computer scientist?
