Lickestra is a musical licking performance at the intersection of food design and technology developed in collaboration with artist & designer Carla Diana and composer Arone Dyer of Buke&Gase.
Playing with the experience of taste, the performance presents a series of conductive ice creams that trigger various baselines and tones when licked.
From improvisation to orchestration, eater becomes performer as the act of licking reaches beyond flavor to become an instrument for play.
Lickestra lasts until all the ice cream is licked.
