Intentional Glitchtableware for multisensory eating, is a master’s project where, through deliberate mistakes in tableware, I embody sensory qualities while creating vessels. Subsequently, I research which multisensory properties – touch, sight, taste, sound and smell participate in the process of using the tableware. I reflect on whether the dishes with the glitch can also increase attentiveness while in use.

I disclose an attachment to my research objects, where I develop a relationship between the tableware and myself. I felt this connection as a force that brought my embodied mistake out of myself into the world. This is the beginning of the cycle for me and the vessels where food, with its own materiality, renews the multisensory experience.
