The finale of the FED UP season

Edible Sound by Matthew HerbertEdible sound 2

On 16 March 2016 we held a special one-off performance by artist, musician and composer Matthew Herbert . Through a series of experiments, Herbert created audio recordings of ingredients widely-used in processed food, etching them, via laser-cutting technology, onto various consumable items. The outcome was an assortment of edible records that were played on the night.

In the final phase of FED UP, from January to March 2016, we explored issues around sustainability and food waste.

The Champion Agency

#DIYfood included practical social media tips, a YouTube series with Milo the Freegan, regular features with Reprezent Radio and culminated in an inspirational #FEDup dinner party.

During November and December 2015 there were events and activities to test your taste buds, enliven your senses as looked at challenging perception about food.

Research workshop by Alexandra SextonRainbow_of_natural_food_colors

What goes into the foods we eat, and why do we end up consuming the foods we do? As part of the FED UP season Alexandra Sexton held a one-day workshop to explore our perceptions of the foods we eat today, and discuss views on the cultural and political dynamics bound up in these products.

A collision of comedy and science with comedians Steve Cross, Helen Zaltzman and an array of academics and scientists inspired by the FED UP season was held in Henriette Raphael House, Guy’s Campus, King’s College London.

The FED UP season kicked off in July 2015 exploring fermented foods and our relationship with food.
