Today, food is art and necessity, tradition and future, hope and concern. The preservation of our planet is closely related to how we, as its inhabitants, learn to reexamine and transform our eating habits. Almost simultaneously, food has become an extraordinarily innovative means for art and creativity. Cooks are artists, scientists, and gurus. For photographers and bloggers, fruits and vegetables are the new supermodels, and product designers have found an unlimited field of experimentation and creation. Food Futures presents a collection of design projects illustrating the possibilities that new technol- ogies open up to designers and the way we perceive food from a design perspective. This book explores current experimentation and innovation in food design from both material and conceptual points of view. The projects selected for this edi- tion have been realized through design, and perform inquiries into our responsibility, our relationship with food and the acts that surround it, and how social and environmental changes will transform the way we experience food in the future.
