Jinhyun Jeon’s Sensory Spoons are edged with bumps or rippled like waves to catch and pool food. Some have rough interiors and handles to stimulate the fingers holding them. Texture and shape change what we taste. Bulbous utensils recall lollipops and sex toys. The materials of the spoons were chosen for their temperature and sonic properties, lulling the tongue or clinking against our teeth. The utensil tips are bathed in bubble gum pink or strawberry red.
Sensory Spoons were featured in the 2018 exhibit, Senses; Design Beyond Vision
