Subnature was initially applied to architecture—the idea that marginalized spaces and materials should not be rejected, but embraced. This concept was brought to food by the Nordic Food Lab in Copenhagen, a project born out of the world famous Restaurant NOMA. Duke partnered with the Nordic Food Lab when they decided to do a program on Subnature and Culinary Cuisine, which concluded with the Carolina Chefs Dinner at the Cotton Room—a beautifully renovated former cotton warehouse in Durham’s downtown Golden Belt development.
This past Saturday I went to the Wide Open Bluegrass Street Fest in Raleigh with a friend. I really like folk music, especially Irish and Welsh folk music—which is where Bluegrass originated. I was expecting an open field with a hand full of stages set up about the periphery and the middle open for booths and food vendors. This was not the case.
On Thursday Jake and I went to the opening night of the Bull City Sculpture Show in Durham Central Park. Hosted by Liberty Arts, the show promises to be a “vibrant six-month long public outdoor sculpture exhibition” from May to October. Starting off in pedestrian-friendly Durham Central Park, the show criss-crosses downtown Durham all the way down to DPAC.
