Past Futures Pop-up Dinner

A taste of the edible insects

This pop up dinner is a collaborative effort between various designers including: Monica Martinez (Don Bugito) and Raquel Kalil at O2 Artisans Aggregate.

We worked to develop the idea of creating a new landscape for presenting insects as a future food.  From the lens of design we investigated the challenges of culinary norms and perception of food. How might we make edible insects commonplace for consumers in the western world? At the night of the event, we talked about the culture, history and design choices behind each dish and use of tableware. 

My contribution is ideating on the dining experience, graphic and physical prototyping, concrete plate fabricating.
