/ eating air /

This food performance was part of the Flux factory collective food art extravaganza entitled "All You Can Art". Miwa's performance was the appetizer, she wanted to have you eat air. Yes eat air. Somewhere between taste and smell all these experiences got you thinking about your tasting mechanism. And concentrating on these often overlooked "chemical" senses.


Place the dropper with the pommegranite seed into your mouth and squirt. The liquid should vaporize and fill your senses with a perfumed sugary smell as you eat the pommegranite seed.

golden liquid

This liquid is an extremely common taste. Everyone knows what it is yet in this environment far removed from it's original shape and texture, many people have a very difficult time placing exactly what it is and yet they know the taste so well that it elicits memories perhaps some nostalgia.


In the back-ground of this image you can see the extremely light cracker-like "flu-flu". Even lighter and fluffier than a meringue"flu-flu" has some heavily scented herbs inside, including rose-hips which pack much taste though there is hardly any matter to the cracker.

spirit of air

Each of these glacial tubes contains one of four taste/smells. You are meant to inhale them. You do not actually ingest anything, yet the taste fills your mouth. You are actually eating air.

The show got a little press
