Science Gallery

Natalie Jeremijenko will bring the famous Cross Species (xSpecies) Adventure Club to Science Gallery for the next installment of our Curated Dinners series. 

In the first of our Curated Dinners, Heather Julius explored the relationship between food and place. In the second, Designgoat took us on a culinary trip through Dublin. In the next Curated Dinner, The Cross Species (xSpecies) Adventure Club will enlist humans to explore a biodiverse and delicious future; to engage in culinary experiments; invest in food innovation; and participate in re-designing our collective relationship to natural systems.

Each xSpecies Adventure Club is an experience of the depth and complexity of our interconnections with nonhumans, exploring the web that traces our gastronomic, economic and material interdependency with butterflies, snails, geese, bats and other intelligent and delicious creatures. This on-going lifestyle experiment is created by Natalie Jeremijenko, Mihir Desai (gastronomist superstar), Emilie Baltz of Fork & Design (design oversight), and other intelligent creatures


As Associate Professor of Visual Art Director of xDesign Environmental Health Clinic at New York University, Jeremijenko blends art, engineering, environmentalism, biochemistry and more to create real-life experiments that enable social change. She is an artist whose background includes studies in biochemistry, physics, neuroscience and precision engineering, and will also be delivering a talk on opportunities presented by new technologies for non-violent social change.
