Save food from the Fridge!

I am always amazed how much practical knowledge we have lost over the years as we rely more and more on technology to provide for our solutions. This exciting project by Jihyun Ryou seeks to uncover the oral traditions that have been passed down from generation to generation (particularly focusing on the food preservation) and uses design to bring this knowledge back into everyday life.

“Observing the food and therefore changing the notion of food preservation, we could find the answer to current situations such as the overuse of energy and food wastage. My design is a tool to implement that knowledge in a tangible way and slowly it changes the bigger picture of society. I believe that once people are given a tool that triggers their minds and requires a mental effort to use it, new traditions and new rituals can be introduced into our culture.”
…..Through the objects of everyday life, design can introduce traditional oral knowledge into people’s lives through their experience of using it. Objects make invisible knowledge evident.”
