Jasper’s work in a nutshell: a food performance with spoken words and self-designed ceramics is served together with his own music as part of an edible exhibition about the future of food. As you eat the vegetables he grows in his garden at the Museum of Taste, you’ll smell edible scents, and when you scan your napkin, you’ll enter a 3-D version of a utopian city that tells the story of a better world. And when you leave the museum, it turns out you were part of a work of art….

On the side, Jasper teaches and tells his stories at schools and acts as a food consultant when a company wants to change its eating habits.

Jasper Udink ten Cate creates inclusive artwork for blind people and uses food to “visualize” the story he wants to tell.
