Neo Futurist Dinners
Skin Hunger is part of the Neo Futurist Dinner series – for the occasion turned into a Neo Futurist Breakfast. Mediamatic invites a number of artists and chefs to present their vision on the food of the future. The dinners allow us to question the ways in which food, art, science and politics intertwine and to rediscover the human basic needs.
Alice Herón is both artist and chef. She currently works in our Mediamatic ETEN restaurant. In her work she combines food and art with a focus on the way nature is used and consumed. Inspired by growing elements, like plants and fungi, she explores the interaction between design and taste. As globetrotter she is a fan of different cuisines. The techniques that she learned by studying them allow her work to flourish.

Margherita, resident artist at Mediamatic, explores the relationship between objects and substances in our bodies and senses. As a material designer, she focuses specifically on how this relationship impacts human behaviour. In a society very much focused on the visual, she wants to get people to "see" with their other senses. Her research therefore concentrates on people rather than things, resulting in intimate, personal and interactive work.
