The perfect excuse to play with your food!
Mixing the studio, laboratory and fine-dining experience, artist-scientist Lisa Carrie Goldberg will lead learners through a basic dissection of their very own squid, including careful extraction of its multipurpose ink.
The edible parts of the squid will then head over to the kitchen to be transformed into an artful seafood entrée courtesy of Chef Christopher Showalter, who will also demonstrate how to clean, cut and prepare the squid for grilling.
While participants wait for their hard-earned meals they’ll be able to use the raw harvested ink to paint and print-make.
As some of the oldest ocean dwellers, squids and other cephalopods have fascinating anatomical features and complex digestive systems that are virtually unlike any other phylum. By providing an opportunity to experience a squid from scalpel to steak knife, Subtle Technologies hopes to foster greater appreciation for cephalopods and a commitment to sustainable consumption of these amazing creatures.
