Living Food: Pushing the Boundaries of Food Art

Food doesn't just feed us and keep us nourished - it's an experience. A great meal has the power to evoke powerful emotions and can be considered a form of art.

Royal College of Art graduate Minsu Kim is taking that notion further than you could imagine with his incredible "Living Food" project, a nod to elevating sensory - on all levels - within the art of cuisine.

That's right: living food. Isn't it strange that we cook food to make it unliving and this man wants to reanimate it? Kim says of his work, "This [project] explores new culinary experiences through developments in synthetic biology, and finds its lineage in haute cuisine and molecular gastronomy." He adds, "What if food was able to play with our cutlery and create hyper-sensations in our mouth?"
