"Inspired by the anatomy of the brain and the convoluted evolution and workings of the mind, Guerilla Science proposes to transform a former WW2 bunker into an incarnation of the human brain. Stuffed with memories, tangles and surprises, the Brain Bunker will offer guests a sensory exploration of the universe inside our heads."
We shall be cooking a five course dinner in the bunker for three nights of the exhibition, inpired by the aesthetics and idiosyncracies of the brain. We have spent some time chatting to and eating with members at Headway East London, a charity which works to improve the lives of people who have suffered brain injuries. Informed by their descriptions of the ways in which the senses are affected by damage to the brain, we have planned a menu exploring how our senses are employed while eating, and how expectation and perception can shape the experience.
It would be remiss if we were not to cook brains, and so we shall, but we will have a vegetarian menu available for those that want it - please make it known at the time of booking.
Tickets cost 45 pounds, plus a booking fee of £3.15, and can be booked by clicking on these links:
