MOUTHY: Rumination on Mastication
18 November, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm£10
Join Science Gallery London for a spot of ‘Rumination on Mastication’ – chew the cud with oral cavity experts over a few tasty morsels, to get the juices flowing. If you think saliva is unpalatable, think again, as we will dive into the microcosm of the mouth; delving beneath your pearly whites to explore the ecosystem, landscape and inhabitants of this wet world.
This pop-up restaurant will allow people to sit down and ‘break bread’ with experts, indulging in one of the vital performances of the body, chewing and exploring themes and subjects that have been delved into during the season. The menu has been curated by visual artist and speculative designer, Victoria Shennan, in collaboration with food designers Blanch and Shock and researchers from the Dental Institute at King’s College London. It celebrates the mouth’s most quotidian motions and each course will guide you to Breathe, Taste, Cleanse and Chew, pushing you to embrace the mouth in new ways as you consider the sensitive and essential organ.
