Beyond Food: Exploring Future Food Scenarios

August 18th – August 24th 2019

The Workshop

What is food? Food is central to shape our bodies through its nutrition. It nourishes our minds through indulgence of its aesthetics, texture and taste. It shapes our natural and human-made surroundings by the way it is cultivated and distributed. It also shapes the political landscape, for example when it gets scarce through climate change or when humans start competing for resources of land and water in order to grow it.

There´s seldomly a topic so diverse, complex yet so simple in its universal understanding of people everywhere. This workshop explores the natural edible landscape around us and finds new methods and tools to collect or grow new sources of food. You are going to design unique and immersive food scenarios and "dinner" experiences.
