On the 10th of October, ICG Gallery London will be hosting “Edible Clouds”: a sensory experience that metaphorically traces the circular production process of the H2 Factory, the world's first ceramics factory powered by green hydrogen, “Cloud to Cloud”.
“Edible Clouds” is an individual guided tour that tells of the circular transformation process that starts from nature and returns to it, returning that which it borrowed, creating a new, sustainable material. Ceramic materials which for the occasion will take the shape of a tasty Bao: the steamed bun of Eastern cuisine which, at the end of this sensory journey, can be decorated and enjoyed by the participants.
It all starts with a cloud – a dew catcher - and its rain water that, as in the process of electrolysis, separates it into hydrogen molecules: metaphorically speaking, green edible bubbles floating in the air.
Visitors are invited to knead and shape a primary mixture of water and flour, as if it was ceramic material made of earth and water. The bread is then steamed in a steamer, using a form of clean energy produced by the steam which, returning to the atmosphere, helps to recreate the initial dew catcher cloud.
The process is circular, perpetual, almost magical.
The metaphor is not only ideal but also real, because at the end of the journey the visitors can taste the finished product.
"Edible Clouds" represents an incredible fusion of creativity, sustainability and the culinary arts.
