Saturday 7 September 3.30pm – 5pm Julie F Hill The Edible Universe

A gastronomic workshop/tasting experience exploring conceptions of deep space and its extreme environments. Imaginative culinary creations will be devised from scientific descriptions and information gathered by scientific instruments, such as the distant light from stellar objects and planetary surfaces. For instance, participants will be invited to taste edibles such as a creme brulée based on the surface of the Saturnian moon Titan and sip on Saggitarius B2, a giant molecular cloud at the centre of the Milky Way.

Bio: Julie F Hill is a British artist who employs an expanded approach to photography, creating sculptural installations that explore conceptions of deep-space and cosmological time. Hill studied at Central Saint Martins (BA), the Royal College  of Art (MA) and is currently a Fellow in Digital Print at the Royal Academy Schools. She has exhibited nationally and internationally including the Capture Photography Festival, Vancouver, CA (2019); Grizedale Sculpture (2018); Glasgow International Festival, Glasgow, UK (2016); Single-Shot, Tate Britain, London, UK & Touring (2007). She is a current recipient of the Arts Council Developing Your Creative Practice Grant for her project Through Machine & Darkness that looks at the use of AI in examining astronomical datasets (2019). www.juliehill.co.uk
