Excerpt / Los Angeles artist Sean Raspet’s work operates with and amongst the determinate systems that influence our world, such as finance and chemistry. Over the past few years, this research has evolved into some interesting paths for the artist, who became a self-trained chemist in order to realize projects that range from reconstituting crude oil in Hydrocarbon Reformulations to the creation of experimental flavors for Soylent. In this conversation we discuss this recent work as well as the upcoming launch of his algae-based food company non/food, co-founded with Lucy Chinen.
