Digest Me!- A food art performance by Dilara Erbay and Franka
Gezi was fed by tear gas and transformed it to an inspiration of an awakening. Now it’s time for digesting. Let's get rid of our "gas" a.k.a ego and let's release. Take me as who I am I and digest me! A magic herbal tea can help with cinnamon, cardamon, thyme, mint, lavender, rose, cumin and cloves.
