Event description

Description

Let’s talk about fat, with artists Mike Thompson and Arne Hendricks, and Science Gallery Melbourne, while eating deliciously fatty three cheese jaffles around the fire.

This very special discussion coincides with the Science Gallery Melbourne's 'Disposable' exhibition, featuring a fatberg being grown by Mike Thompson and Arne Hendricks.

Arne Hendriks is a researcher, artist and curator who explores the edges of specific cultural values that define our relationship with the planet. In Hendriks’ opinion, we should open our minds to radical, new ideas and disruptive practices.

Mike Thompson is a designer, researcher, and educator, drawn to the dark corners of biotechnological research, and co-founder of experimental, art/design research collective Thought Collider. Together, Hendriks and Thompson are known as the agents driven to build the worlds first floating island of fat – the Fatberg in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

The Jaffle Symposium is a curated a program of discussions, where interesting people talk about interesting things while making and eating jaffles around the open fire at Testing Grounds. You can view the full program here.
