Tasty spoons and drinkable clouds: the art of engineering
You are invited to the Royal Academy of Engineering for an evening of stimulating discussion and futuristic food, with Professor Mark Miodownik, Director of the UCL Institute of Making and Professor of Materials and Society at UCL Mechanical Engineering, and David Edwards, founder and director of The Laboratory in Harvard University and Le Laboratoire in Paris.
These two engineers from both sides of the Atlantic work at the interface between engineering and the arts, and will show the impact creative thinking can have on our daily lives – including the ways we understand food, taste, and the dining experience.
Both have dedicated their careers to promoting dialogue between the worlds of engineering, art and design. In this one-off event, they discuss their different approaches to bridging disciplines and fostering creativity, and showcase some of the tastier ideas that have emerged from their work – including cutlery that alters the flavour of meals, cocktails that come enclosed in their own skin, and treats that aren’t swallowed, but inhaled.
