For us Europeans, using chopsticks can be quite a challenge. Influenced by Asian cutting techniques, special, handcrafted “dining implements” as a hybrid of chopsticks and spoons were produced during the trip. These objects made of bamboo or very slow-growing Japanese maple were three-dimensionally scanned in Switzerland. The data produced formed the basis for two-dimensional prints on paper: a graphic translation of a cultural asset, the texture of the material, and the polygonal network of the shape that was generated. The prints are reminiscent of X-ray images; they “probe” the dimensions of object and culture .
