Who knew that a forkful of food could have such a far reaching effect? The Science Gallery’s first foray into food, EDIBLE, tackles this vast topic from the perspective of the eater, probing how our actions as eaters shape what is sown, grown, harvested and consumed. EDIBLE, Science Gallery’s foray into the future of food is an exhibition you can eat. As an eater, you are a powerful agent of selection. You make choices at every meal that shape and change the culinary-agro-ecosystem. EDIBLE interrogates the emerging biotechnologies, innovative food cultures and novel culinary practices that are changing the way we eat. EDIBLE will be a sensory feast from morsels of genomic gastronomy to external mechanical digestive systems. Furthermore, the exhibition is free—what more motivation do you need?
