What’s Eating Reality?

We’re so excited to present What’s Eating Reality? - our dinner party with a difference from digital artist Maya Chowdhry.


Be inspired by a delicious menu of seasonal, local and reclaimed food, expertly created by artist and chef Helen Russell Brown. Watch as the dining table comes alive with moving images of food production and commentaries from local food activists.

What’s Eating Reality? is an augmented feast, in which host and maitre’d Maya orchestrates dinner using performance and projection mapping to gently immerse you into a new reality - one in which the food you love may be in short supply.

A score of sonic seasoning has been composed by Caro C, who will perform live.

We live in a critical time for food, full of challenges. British households throw away 4.4 million tonnes of edible food a year. Thankfully, innovative growers have come up with solutions such as using discarded coffee grounds to grow mushrooms and dairies are powering homes with what would otherwise be wasted whey. 

This piece has been carefully curated to help you digest the journey your food has taken, from seed to plate through the lens of global food justice.
