Since 2013, Oi! has delivered programmes under various annual themes at Oi! Kitchen, which serves as a platform for new ways of thinking to solve everyday problems and for the exchange of ideas, along with daily discoveries.
The eight basic flavours are sour, sweet, bitter, spicy, salty, astringent, fishy and pungent. The taste buds on our tongues detect these flavours and send signals to our brain, arousing our perception and imagination. The project themed "The Unexplored Flavour: 𝑥", aims to encourage the public to find new inspiration with their tongues and awaken neglected flavours in our everyday lives. "𝑥", an unknown value in mathematics, is a metaphor for uncertainty and a symbol of various unknowns. Oi! is honoured to have local design collective, Deep Food alter Oi! Kitchen as a laboratory and to launch a series of public participatory programmes, starting the journey of searching for new flavours and unknowns in our lives. Three directions – individuals, time and space – will be set out in order to transform every part of our lives to cultivate both emotional and physical wellness.
