Sentient Kitchen, Fleshy Kitchen Accessories That Look Like Body Parts

Sentient Kitchen is a project by New York-based artist Christine Chin that she describes as “fleshy kitchen accessories.” Each one is a creepy mélange of a human body part and a familiar item from the kitchen.

Sentient Kitchen examines the convergence between technology and biology. As the machines that assist our lives become smarter and more architecturally complex, they borrow increasingly from the biological realm. Sentient Kitchen takes inspiration from some of nature’s most ingenious engineering. What better way to dispense salt than through an organ that is highly developed to taste, and why not take advantage of the mammary gland’s unique relationship to milk? While it is the nature of the human ego to cast suspicion on a challenge to human intellect, Sentient Kitchen products offer a non-threatening environment to explore the benefits of smarter, more sensitive solutions to our daily dining needs.
