Open Sauces

Open sauces is a FoAM project to investigate the sharing of food, food culture and food systems. Last week in Brussels we started experimenting with ways to store, display and reason about recipes in different ways. Taking the recipes from the Open Sauces book we’re representing them as Petri Nets, which means we can feed them into various different visualisations, from Scheme Bricks – taken from the Naked on Pluto’s gallery installation projection:


To a new brand new circular representation:


These structures are filtered somewhat to be more readable than the raw petri nets, which can be rendered via graphviz for debugging:
