Synaesthetic Confessions
A taste and sound booth in collaboration with Jamieson Hudson and Tony Nicholls
“There seems to have been an increased fetishisation around food in the past few years. The boundaries between food and art are constantly being blurred, and restaurant showpieces become a specifically designed experience for all the senses. This work draws upon these ideas by still presenting an exquisitely crafted taste experience, but placing the “dining experience” inside a space that has other connotations. This whole physical experience is then combined with music. Drawing upon neurological and sensory science studies, links have been found between specific tastes and specific frequencies, so much so that the experience of listening to something while you eat can change you experience of that flavour. This work explores that phenomenon.”
