Probing the habitats of the ‘un-natural‘, Sneha Solanki presents a new and expanding rendition of the ‘E-Number’ food additive system. Focusing on the emerging changes taking shape in our food landscape, this ‘version 2.0’ includes only micro-organisms that have been intentionally and genetically altered, created or re-programmed to produce flavours, aromas, colours, preservatives and nutrition as food additives.

Consisting of bacteria, fungi (yeasts & molds), algae and viruses, the project collates references, micro-organisms and the results of their activity as additives, explored in the exhibition as a ‘Micro Food Library’.
