Event: One Long Collective Table by Table + Supper Studio 13
Event curated by Jia Gu
November 13, 2014

For the occasion of Potluck and Host: Natural Histories for Los Angeles, a World Wide Storefront event organized by Mimi Zeiger and the LA Forum
Participants Erin Besler and Ian Besler, Laurel Consuelo Broughton and Andrew Kovacs, Jose Sanchez, and Katya and Alexei Tylevich

For the thirteenth rendition of Supper Studio, each OTDI team was invited to design a freestanding table as their contribution to the potluck. The individual tables form one long, collective table, an exquisite and parasitic corpse running through the length of the Neutra VDL House.

The collective table is envisioned as a single, continuous surface upon which a grid of 2” x 2” finger foods can be served. (This is the standard size of saltine crackers.)
