Created by Io Palmer and Lisa Link, Serve & Project is a public art initiative that explores the cultural, political and economic issues surrounding the production and consumption of food.

For their collaboration, the team invited “guests” to participate in a Cyberfeast banquet by creatively interpreting a series of dishes. The work submitted came in the form of videos and photographs as well as an inaugural multi-dining networked event. As hosts to Cyberfeast, Lisa and Io skyped with each guest from across the country. Guests posted their work to the blog and also recorded their experiences on paper or cloth dinner napkins.

Cyberfeast is ongoing and both Lisa and Io would like to “dine” with many people from around the world. In the future, it is their hope that the Cyberfeast project will be displayed as an installation made up of hundreds of napkins and large projections documenting this project.
