A culinary illusion by the chef Paul Pairet Tomate-Mozza et Encore is at the origin of the installation’s design.
Two plates visually identical, but with different tastings. This trick eye is unveiled thanks to a seesaw movement inspired by the theater machinery. The revelation happens as a change of scenery. This kinetic movement evokes the idea of the cooking process. When the two glass domes are slowly lifted up, two black light lamps bring the two plates ingredients list out, one is salted, the other sweet.
The collaboration with a perfumer adds an olfactory dimension to the sensory experience.
