The Tasting Game is an educational and fun way for anyone to learn about tastes and healthy food. By blindfolding the participant, they are forced to use the sense of taste to guess what food they are presented with. The game was created for people who do not like healthy food or who lack food knowledge.
The Context: The Tasing Game was developed as a part of the course Designing for Sustainability and Resilience instructed by Claire Hartten and Kate Bakewell. In collaboration with Sean Brennan, the founder of the Brain Food Garden Project, through which Sean aims to integrate gardening with psychiatric treatment at hospitals and for people outside of hospitals, too, to offer lifelong healing for people after hospitalisation using benefits of food-growing education.
