The film builds on a multi-sensory immersive performance I conceived and designed together with a number of key collaborators, and which took place on a single evening, at a unique London location and involved a small number of selected guests. The central narrative is inspired by William Morris’s journey to Iceland in 1871. The purpose was to see how a physical journey across a landscape could be reimagined as a culinary experience, which is then communicated in moving image. We have also taken a lot of inspiration from Marinetti’s Futurist Cookbook.
The film is an outcome of my ongoing investigation of how multi-sensory impressions can be communicated by audio-visual means.
