To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Winter Arts Festival at Bunjil Place, Bompas & Parr have collabarated with JPL Flavour Technologies to create the flavour of their bespoke edible fog that has been inspired by the rich heritage of Casey’s foodways and the produce of the region.

The first aspect of this edible art series, Casey Cornucopia, is spread over 24 days. This edible and interactive installation features captivating sculptures and an exciting outdoor edible weather system, and will also include educational workshops, garden tours, a local food hub and an exclusive dining program, making it perfect for the winter school holidays.

Casey Cornucopia explores the indigenous produce of the region and has encapsulated this with the flavoured fog and giant produce they have created. The Fruit Weather uses powerful fog machines to fill the air with bespoke clouds, with flavours developed in collaboration with JPL.

The bespoke flavoured smoke system released from the base of the sculptures will run every day for 24 straight days and will bring to life fruit, vegetables and plants that are indigenous to the local area.

One of the more notable flavours is the chocolate lily, which has been selected for its local Indigenous connections, its beauty, and of course its unexpected scent. Visitors wil get to discover the story behind the chocolate lily by joining the daily informative tours and also attend the Cornucopia documentary series, screened daily. The chocolate lily is commonly found in Bunurong Country which is the home of Mayone-bulluk Bunurong clans which encapsulates the City of Casey where Bunurong civilization has occupied the LGA area throughout antiquity.

The story of the chocolate lily will be told by Indigenous artist Adam Magennis from Bunurong Country.
