Abstract

When food, art, and machines clash in a gallery you have Hedonistika. Part food and part robotic exhibition curators Simon Laroche and Jane Tingley tackle the connections between food and technology with the aesthetics of digital art. On offer was a 3D printer providing you with an edible momento mori, a screening of a human GI tract digesting processed food, and a robot that feeds willing visitors. The three installations were created across three teams composed of food scholars, artists, and roboticists.
