Zeenath Hasan:
Mnemonic Cooking – Talk & Experience

Pleasures of the flesh titillate the senses. Dependencies linger and seem hard to shake off. Can hybrid, discursive doings shift the weak will?

Mnemonic Cooking transgresses rhetorics of the flesh to produce digestibles. A meal that is reminiscent of cooking meat, minus the meat.

Tenderize smoky carrots. Mince pink hummus. Tear strawberry leather. Inject bread.

Zeenath Hasan will offer a brief design talk followed by a snack for us to practice what we just learned!
