As Part of an on going work with gustatory synaesthete James Wannerton and curator Andrew Stellitano , we where invited by The Eat Festival to explore the city of Cape Town through the filter of James’s synaesthesia . James toured the city via google earth and gave his taste associations to a number of locations . Guests were given tasters of the food pairing while viewing the images in an attempt to give an insight into James’s synaesthetic experience.
These images where shown as a companion pieces to the documentary ‘Marmite and Pear drops’.
Table Mountain – Pear Drops , Kommetjie – Sponge Cake ,
