A multisensory installation exploring our sense of flavour.
Rethink everything you thought you knew about taste at our Flavour Feast, a pop-up party for the senses!
This brightly-coloured roving booth serves up a menu of six interactive experiences that take participants on a topsy-turvy sensory journey. Gain a new understanding of the role of touch, hearing, smell and sight in the construction of taste. Are you a super taster? Does colour influence the way you perceive food? Can changes in sound impact the way you eat?
Explore these questions and more with the help of our staff of expert food scientists and chemists, who have celebrated the complex secrets of flavour with over 6000 audience members. The booth has been featured in the UK at the Barbican Centre, StreetLife Hackney, and in the USA at Burning Man festival.
The Fermentation Station can be added to any Flavour Feast event to explore added content about the gut microbiome and food.
‘Guerilla Science were a delight to work with. Over 850 people participated in the Flavour Feast tasting sessions that took place in the Barbican foyers over the course of two days… The multi-sensory exploration of the flavour demonstrations were fun and informative for young and old alike and perfectly complemented our Life Rewired theme’
– Assistant Producer, Barbican.
