Bompas & Parr Present the World’s First Gherkin Chandelier Video

Culinary experimentalists Sam Bompas and Harry Parr of Bompas & Parr present this video exploring the untapped electrical potential of pickles. The result is a chandelier made of  no less than 60 gherkins wired together to produce light. On the science behind the project, the London-based duo note: “The sodium chloride or salt contained within gherkins reacts to an electric current, lighting up, fizzing and crackling while forming a burnt vinegary smell. It’s mind-bogglingly dangerous. If you’re near it when it is turned on you will certainly be electrocuted.” Watch the remarkable short above and share your thoughts with us.
