Taste of Light
In our ongoing search for a 'clean' energy source we exploited several resources, each implying different values and aesthetics. Rather than confirming the current trend of regenerative energies and limit our focus on making these resources accessible, "taste of light" tries to propose an alternative approach to energy to speculate upon.
Inspired by the phenomenon of “sun gazing” and its bio-electromagnetic reproduction the project explores the possibility of extending the human capability to directly process energy from natural sunlight for nourishment.
As eating in general not only serves as a vital need but also implies sensorial and social aspects, this project investigates the aesthetic potential as well as impact of accommodating our habits.
How could we simulate the sensation of taste if eating would not be a necessity any more?
