Living Food

This project explores how food could evolve in the future due to developments in emerging technologies. With this project I propose a future where food shifts towards being a channel of tactile gastronomy – what if food became alive like a fictional character? What if food was able to interact with our cutlery to create hyper-sensations in our mouth? Synthetic biotech has already started to create artificial life; breathing life into artificial digestible forms is not merely a fantasy. I am proposing a future dining experience where food becomes alive. I have experimented with how different impressions could be designed into life-like food and how they would affect our dining experience.
