A taste of Mars

Design School Kolding invites you to have a taste of what water on Mars might taste like at the Copenhagen Culture Night

The news that there is indeed water on the dusty, desolate and lifeless planet of Mars has inspired the four Communication Design students Malte Eskestad, Christina Tran, Cecilie Vår Norsahl and Runi Hedinsson Norsahl to ask the question: What would water on Mars taste like? The inspiration came while they were participating in the course Data Transformation and Visualisation.

The average temperature of Mars is about minus 70 degrees Fahrenheit but the perchlorate salts lower the freezing temperature, and the water remains liquid.

Taste Mars is a project that transforms the abstract NASA data into a universally comprehensible language, yielding a sensory and bodily experience on Earth.

-We want to highlight the importance of the latest finding on Mars in a witty way, leading us to question our relationship with water: the essence of life, the students say.

A taste of Mars will be presented during Culture Night 2015 on 9 October at the Ministry of Higher Education and Science, Bredgade 40 in Copenhagen.
