One of the participants wrapped in a Shroud - How would you like to be tucked in before going into the ground? Things are changing in the funeral world. Music is not only choirs and organs anymore. Graveyards do not have to be located next to churches. And coffins do not necessarily to be made from wood. As our believes shift, the materials we choose around death also change. It is a crucial time for designers to come up with new rituals, spaces and other death-related designs. If you actually want to be composted, it is better to be… Filippo Iannone

Mediamatic Cuvée - Studio Oedipus No. 19 - WILD ALE - 6.5% Over the course of a year we collaborated with Mediamatic and artist Zeger Reyers on four seasonal beers made with different parts of the Elder tree: branches, berries, flowers and the Judas Ear mushrooms that grow on it. This cuvée is a blend of the branch and berry beers with mushrooms and elderflower added later. The flavours combine to form “Vlierbier”: a spicy drink reminiscent of a herbal aperitif, with notes of fruit, liquorice and earthy mushrooms.

"Les portraits olfactifs" - The «olfactory portraits» are portraits of intimacies. They are the results of encounters between an artist and a population, an opportunity to discuss. By asking everyone to show me the cosmetic products he would use every day and by taking the picture in his house, they let me get in their private smelly life. They open to everyone the possibilities to imagine and to realise the smell of their necks, hairs... It not only a projection of the inside to the outside, of the self to the other but… Boris Raux

Putting Edible patches on faces - Course 6 - Detoxing Our skin protects us, but how much do we care for it? As a society, we rely on chemical creams that promise us miraculous results and seem to forget that the skin is an organ, and just like our bellies deserves something yummy and kind. For this 7-course dinner, artists Margherita Soldati, Krisztina Czika, and Chef Alice Herón created edible face masks served with lovely plant-based dishes. Inspired by the natural exfoliants and skin-renewing properties of the many foods around us, this dinner… Filippo Iannone
