Taste of Light
Taste of Light is a speculative Design project inspired by the phenomenon of “sun gazing”, a practice that includes the ability to survive without food. What if technology enables humans to extend their metabolic capabilities to directly process energy from natural sunlight for nourishment?
In our ongoing search for a 'clean' energy source, we exploited several resources, each implying different values and aesthetics. Rather than fostering the current trend of regenerative energies and limiting our focus on making these resources accessible, "Taste of Light" explores an alternative approach towards energy to speculate upon.
As eating, in general, is not only a vital need but also has sensorial and social aspects, this project investigates the aesthetic potential of 'eating light' as well as the impact of accommodating our habits.
How could we simulate the sensation of taste if eating were no longer necessary?
