Yes, I get all that. I just worry that they’ll forget, w/ all the intersectionality they’re trying to incorporate, that the food ultimately needs to intersect w/ my taste buds and my stomach. And, yeah, I know, that’s not the main point.
But, to take from a world that I know a little bit more about, it’s sort of like when Infiniti (the car company) decided to introduce their cars in the U.S. by simply showing a series of rocks and water in their ads. I’m not sure if the brand has ever truly recovered from that.
Also, and I mean this seriously, since I’m not the type to get off on food-as-sculpture and sensory ambiguity, I think I’d be perfectly happy to save my $ and just see the pretty high-res pictures that other people will take (if they allow photos). And I kind of wonder if a lot of other people in LA will feel the same way.
Agreed. It will otherwise unintentionally hilarious (except to the folks who spent that $$$ on the experience).
