Cafe recreates a small country cafe in Texas that plays with the senses with interactive installation and performance. Visitors are given a series of sensory elements reminiscent of the artist's childhood in Texas and substitutes them with engineered substances. Look out the window: there is a video of a barn played on loop entitled, Outside Nacogdoches.  BBQ, lemonade, and pie grace the menu, however, these “Food Bytes” are synthetically modified food and are the only “food” served and consumed in the Cafe.  The resemblance to reality that this constructed space invites viewers to engage with a world of make-believe.
