CHEWING MONSTER

Chewing Monster is an immersive pop-up game arcade. The exhibition attempts to explore intercultural, intergroup, intermedia, and “interspecies” communication in the posthuman era from within the imagined context of an alien farm. The visitors are invited to “raise” and “nurture”-through their interactions with the installations-an alien monster that produce cognition-enhancing edibles. Chewing Monster brings together innovative ideas from the worlds of art, design, digital programming, gaming, and dining. It offers visitors an entertaining “farm-to-table” experience and showcases an alluring world of intense visual, cerebral, and sensory pleasures.

Chewing Monster is created and presented by Chewing Theory in collaboration with Cloud Gallery.

Chewing Theory is a creative brand founded by HE Wei, the member of NEW INC and co-founder of the HE+HU Creative Collective. Consistent with the collective’s previous endeavor, the brand is dedicated to sensory experience, cultural communication, and human-machine interaction through interdisciplinary art programs, combining sculpture, installation, design, technology, performance, and food to create a participatory art event. We aim to explore the balance among space, art, and the digital (virtual) world that at the moment intersects closely with the physical one.

The Store

Visitors can discover and shop a quirky and unique range of monster-related products and supplies. All who “labor” at the three bio-labs of “the shelter” will be granted a certificate of live birth of a monster baby in acknowledgment of their contribution. However, only a small proportion of visitors who stand out in their performance will be rewarded with special gifts.
