The Photography of Modernist Cuisine: The Exhibition closed on September 1, 2014

“Food like you’ve never seen before.” The Tech’s newest exhibition, The Photography of Modernist Cuisine, is a collection of innovative, critically acclaimed photographs taken by former Microsoft CTO Nathan Myhrvold and his team. The photographs illuminate the accessible science at work every day in our kitchens.

Fun Facts:

  • Total number of photos: More than 75 large-scale images 
  • Largest photo size: 96 in (burger, steak panorama, and levitating ice cream) 
  • 15 images are 71" x 47" which is a little smaller than a full-size bed (which is 75x54)
  • Our standard size small images are 42” x 25”, or about the size of a 50” TV
  • All told, our printed surface area is 900 square feet, or about enough to cover half a volleyball court.
