Decode was a fantastic exhibition at the V&A last year. It helped me understand the potential of interactive technology – for me it was an important moment for inspiration in my ideas.

So, being a student looking for chances to make good contacts, I took the opportunity to help Arabeschi di Latte cater for Studio Toogood at their exclusive party. I knew next to nothing about the event when I agreed to participate, and having been at it, I still don’t know that much about it apart from the food side. I recognised a few faces but couldn’t place them, including someone who said he was a journalist… I invited lots of them to the Designersblock private view on Wednesday, perhaps I’ll find out who they are then.
The theme for the party was iridescence, which happens to be one of my favourite words. The food was almost iridescent. Here’s the menu:

You move and you watch a colourful you mirror your movements with a time delay, or watch yourself become three yous and gradually disappear, or your hands become monsters… there are all sorts of fun things people are doing with cameras and displays these days.
One company that makes these sorts of things is Quadratura, you should check them out.
