Artist Matthew Herbert has successfully created edible record albums that he laser-etched into a variety of foodstuffs, then played and displayed at London's Science Gallery.
For Edible Sound, his Science Gallery London performance, Herbert directs our attention towards ingredients like sugar. Often consumed without consideration of the levels being ingested, sugar in particular, is a primary component in processed foods with direct links to obesity, diabetes and other health issues. Herbert's project spotlights this ingredient (amongst others), at a time when the negative impact of high dietary sugar levels on our health, medical services and the economy is a hot topic. Herbert's interest in sugar stems from its ability to entice consumers in spite of the increasing evidence of its damaging effects.
