I developed an interactive tabletop voting system as part of my work within the transmedia collective âCounterpilotâ. Hidden within the table were a series of 36 custom built RFID sensors, three for each place setting. When these sensors detected a voting token above, OSC messages were sent to a central computer that would tally the common vote. Using a dinner party as a metaphor, Crunch Time is a performantive dinner party modelled on the democratic process. A guest chef prepares real food in response to ingredients voted on by a party of twelve.
