Jihyun Ryou started a really inspiring project which he called “Save Food From The Fridge”. This project is about traditional oral knowledge which has been accumulated from experience and transmitted by mouth to mouth. Particularly focusing on the food preservation, it looks at a feasible way of bringing that knowledge into everyday life. He has crafted a series of food storage contraptions that counter the hidden, black box technology of the refrigerator by relying on the knowledge mentioned above.
His design looks at re-introducing and re-evaluating traditional oral knowledge of food, which is closer to nature. Objects make invisible knowledge evident.
And this is how his objects looks like – inspiring, aren’t they?
I believe that once people are given a tool that triggers their minds and requires a mental effort to use it, new traditions and new rituals can be introduced into our culture.””
