Oncle Sam

Making and eating popcorn looks like art with the machineĀ ‘oncle sam’ by Laurent Beirnaert, Pierre Bouvier, Paul Tubiana.

The Uncle Sam machine processes grains one by one, focusing on the transformation of corn into popcorn. An explosion that usually occurs en masse is here isolated so that the spectacle can be enjoyed. Satisfaction is at once visual and gastronomic.
