The basic principles of a classic Eat Art performance were presented during this evening: theory of Eat Art, partial sensory deprivation, a surreal setting, tool design, and a controversial topic: in-vitro meat VS beyond-meat patties. The meal: an opportunity to meet and eat differently.
The participants were greeted in a living room surrounded by large sheets explaining the Eat Art movement and what food performance could do. They were then invited to another dark room one by one with a torch light (fear and anticipation will contrast with the warmth of the meal). Then, they discovered a pouch on the wall with dehydrated food in it.
They made their own soup while pouring ingredients from the tables and the pouch (the table texture is mushy and wet).
They were introduced to the controversy of in-vitro meat VS beyond-meat products with a short video presented on a rolling TV. They were given unknown patties cooked like Korean food to eat in strange glass cups, plates, and bowls (Lumel studios glasswork). The serving utensils were too long to serve anyone but the person if front of you. Each participant is attached with a red string to the others around the table.
At the end of the meal, each person was served 3 gummies: one vegan, one with THC weed extract in it, and one with protein supplement. All participants ate everything and were stoned at the end of the meal.
