12 Bytes, an event that combines wonderful food and computer art, is conceived as a computer musicale with a four course meal or “interconnected network of small bites, and in between enlightenment and entertainment computer generated sights, sounds and ideas.
This interesting and unique event is brought to you by Communal Table, Ame Gilbert’s culnary endeavor which brings art, ideas, activism and food right to the table. ” We sit down with writers, performers, artists, scientists, chefs and friends to talk and listen and to share wonderful meals,” she writes on Communal Table’s website.
This event happens on FEB 9, at 7PM in a Beautiful Downtown Brooklyn. Tickets $70 (includes beverage pairings)
(address and directions will be provided ticket when you purchase your ticket!)
