On November 11, students in the Product Design Program, directed by Robert Kirkbride, hosted a one-of-a-kind dinner, Watertables 2010, for 30 guests at the exhibition. Vegetables were bought at the Greenmarket, cooked and prepared, plated and served by performers in smocks they had sewn and on tables and trays they had designed and built. As one of the guests remarked, it is rare that one not only knows where the food came from but also who made the plates and tables on which one is eating!
Sprawl: Colony, a sound installation composed by Melissa Grey was performed live. Lightboxes featured food-centred student projects.
Guests were asked to pose a question or problem that could be addressed by students in the 24 hour Population Slam that followed the day after the dinner.
