0701, FlavorFactory, 2018

FlavorFactory is an installation occupying the corner of the gallery. Cut-outs in the white walls are shaped like oversized candy, ice cream, and machine parts. Inside each shape is an animation, which changes when visitors adjust the factory control beneath the animation. Created by food artist and designer Emilie Baltz for this exhibition, FlavorFactory plays with our perceptions of sweetness and disgust.
