Betty Ciphers Algorithmic Recipe Generator


Betty Ciphers Algorithmic Recipe Generator (2016)
AI meal and recipe
in collaboration with Cliff Hamett
The Museum of Contemporary Commodities,  Exeter (UK)

Betty Ciphers Algorithmic Recipe Generator is an experiment in industrial cooking anarchy powered by packaging data from the bin and human bodies. The work is created using disused food and drink packaging from the bins in local eateries in Exeter, and donated human footsteps from staff and customers wearing pedometers. The algorithm is programmed to use up 45,255 footsteps to write a 45,255 step recipe book which combines ingredients at random to create either bizarre delights or culinary chaos.
