AV DINNERS ::: Combining the fine traditions of TV cookery shows and extreme gastronomy in a sensory networked cook-in, hungry artists gather to reinterpret rituals of food preparation and to serve a succession of ambrosial dishes to overload the senses of live and remote participants. The AV DINNERS gastronomic extravaganza will be led by the notorious epicure Vitamin AA, assisted by his able auxiliary, Koko di Mari. Lux will provide flashes and glimpses, and Mux the cable spaghetti and slurps. Aur-or-al poetics will be courtesy of Shane Solanki (Ninja wordsmith, no less!). But beware: Vitamin AA's dishes are crafted to loosen corsets, set tongues wagging, and unhinge minds without mercy. So, whether you're joining us online or cunning enough to win the extreme menu challenge and be with us in person, be careful whom you bring along ... licentiousness and depravity are almost inevitable. Bon App!
