Anarchy in the Kitchen
March 5, 6:30PM
Eyebeam Art + Technology Center

Umami food and art festival is proud to bring together masters of cooking with technology, chefs Nils Noren and David Arnold from the French Culinary Institute with the cutting-edge arts organization Eyebeam. Chefs Arnold and Noren will prepare and serve cocktails and tastes with the aid of new technology—stretching the notion of the “art of cooking.” The demonstration will be accompanied by a screening of a series of short performances, punctuated by videos, culinary remixes and sonic projects designed to refresh the audiences’ palate. The performance brings together a diverse group of artists exploring the intersection of edibility and aesthetics, technology and cuisine, and prose and produce. Over the course of the evening, edible books will be read and consumed, kitchen aids will be used to generate a musical score, newspaper will be transformed into soup, and lemons will be used as a battery source to whip meringue.
