Creative Lockdown Project: Edible alphabet

Creative Lockdown Project: Edible alphabet

This is the third creative lockdown challenge. These challenges are designed to be a bit of fun and to document our time collectively spent in lockdown. Please share this creative challenge with your friends and post your final results on social media.

Challenge
Use the food you have in your home to create an edible alphabet. Think about a word you would like to spell out and work out how to make the letters. Will you arrange the food you’re about to eat or would you like to bake something from scratch?

Don’t go out shopping to buy any extra ingredients, the challenge is to use what you can find in your kitchen. It would be great to see photos of the process as you bake or create your letters.

Results
Share your finished project on social media with #CreativeLockdownProject. Tag #TypeTasting as I’ll be sharing some of the results.

Support the studio
All live events, workshops and talks have been cancelled due to Coronavirus. Virtual events will be announced soon. Meanwhile, you can play a vital role in ensuring that the studio rent is paid by buying me a cup of virtual coffee here. Your help means that I can continue run workshops, research and events again once we’re out the other side, Sarah.

Examples shown: SWEET by Julie Mauro, TYPE by Nathan Dye and EAT MY WORDS by Theo Stewart.

This is the second creative lockdown challenge designed to be a bit of fun and to document our time collectively spent in lockdown. Please share it with friends and post your final results on social media with #CreativeLockdownProject. If you also tag #TypeTasting I’ll be sharing some of the results.

Challenge

For you and a friend to create an alphabet using the human body and a video chat app. You need at least one other self-isolating person to take part, but feel free to turn it into an alphabet challenge party with a large group of friends!

Process

1. Start a video chat with a friend.

2. Take turns creating each letter of the alphabet by posing in different ways. You may need to improvise with props for some of the letters.

3. To document each letter, the person not posing takes a screengrab or photograph of the screen.

4. Compile all the letters to create the full alphabet. Leave the Zoom, Houseparty or Skype frames around the letters. This will document how we’re all socialising while we’re in lockdown. But remember to block out any ID numbers!

Results

Share your finished project on social media with #CreativeLockdownProject. If you also tag #TypeTasting I’ll be sharing some of the results.
