This workshop will use citizen science to detect and extract hormone-mimicking compounds (endocrine disruptors), followed by a hands-on molecular gastronomy cooking class focusing on corn. This workshop requires no prior scientific or cooking experience and is open to anyone interested in how politics, industrial agriculture, and body-autonomy intersect.
“The Future of Food,” the latest exhibition from SciArt Center, will be on view at UsagiNY Gallery (NYC) from February 1st - March 2nd, 2019.
