Listen carefully.
Noodles are synergetic things. Every step must be perfectly built.
A kind of love affair, between bodily appetite and spiritual appetite.


Taking themes of food and eroticism from the 1985 Japanese film Tampopo as a starting point, Melford-Colegate and Reading created a shared online Google Doc entitled ‘Ramen Etiquette.' This evolved into a wider creative exchange in which the two artists shared links, images, videos, drawings and text.

The artists produced objects in response to one another for use as the visual ingredients for their collaborative video Eat With Your Eyes filmed inside the Light Eye Mind gallery, along with Closed Vessel a quadraphonic audio piece made in conjunction with producer David Oversby-Powell.

The inputs of sound and moving image enact the fluidity of the objects, which are given sculptural status within the spatial context of the gallery. The gallery itself acts as a vessel for the fluid components of the exhibition.

The artist’s share a common interest in themes of the sensory body, eroticism and consumption. Inspired by the delicate placing of ingredients in Tampopo and the sensory stimulation of objects in online ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) videos and the materiality of consumer items. 

The artists present remnants of production, constructing a multisensory installation, to be experienced both sensually and physically.
