Just learned about an intriguing event at East Central College in Union, Missouri. From Monday, September 3, through Friday, September 7, artist Dan Schwarzlose will be presenting Synesthesia, a work in which viewers select sounds, smells, tastes and textures from a "bar." The press material I received talks about edible paper that tastes "like the circus" and "listening to black."
Helping out with the event will be Ben Roche, the molecular-gastronomy-inclined pastry chef at Chicago's highly touted avant-garde restaurant Moto. Schwarzlose and Roche will give a public presentation on Wednesday evening. For more information, visit East Central College's site.
Here's a video of Roche explaining the work that he and chef Homaro Cantu do:
