Documentation: The Bliss Point
Part love affair with all things sweet and part critique, The Bliss Point explores food technology with an emphasis on the production and consumption of sugar in its various forms. The specific site of investigation is the human body and its manipulation by major corporations, marketing, government and other institutions. The tension between medical issues such as diabetes and obesity and the idea of a fun and colourful candy mountain sugar party drives this multimedia installation.
The Bliss Point is presented as part of Hedonistika, a curatorial project by Simon Laroche and Jane Tingley. Hedonistika is produced by Elektra festival and conceived by monochrom. It will be presented at the International Digital Arts Biennial / Biennale internationale d'art numérique (BIAN), located at the Musée d'art contemporain, Montréal in May 2014.
