Eat your art out is an interactive souvenir shop selling edible confectionary mementos of the Performance Arcade. Tantalise your taste buds with decadent hand-crafted chocolate mementos and sumptuous art waters. With unique flavours and textures to reference the individual container works and performances within the arcade, EYAO provides souvenirs worth consuming. EYAO plays against the traditional souvenir narrative, the souvenirs cannot be kept and are instead consumed, becoming another fleeting moment, an edible performance, a passing memory. After consuming the mementos customers will be given the option to leave a memory in its place. This written memory will refill the empty vessel that contained the souvenir, becoming part of the work.
