For 3 consecutive nights we dine in the air return duct of the 24ft, 1935 wind tunnel with the ghost of the past hidden in the layers of history. Using cross modal sense stimulation and locally sourced food, Artist Caroline Hobkinson will host an aerobanquet that tells the story of the Dream of Flying in 7 courses.
About the Artist:
Caroline Hobkinson curates dining experiences that encourage diners to reassess the way they eat. Her work looks at the world through food: its history, the rituals how we eat and the traditions of how we prepare it. She is obsessed with the spectacle of eating and how we can modulate flavour by using different sound frequencies. Caroline's work ranges from installations, using food as performance and social commentary to scientific research on flavour enhancement with Oxford University. Her three favourite ingredients are fishing wire, helium and liquid nitrogen. The base of her culinary operations is her studio on Cremer Street, Shoreditch.
