16 April: 10.00 – 11.15 am
Can you eat your own Poo?
Can you use it as a material?
How is poo reflecting your state of being?
There is currently a lot of interest in our digestion system, with numerous books about our intestines and bacteria. It’s rather remarkable though, that we are hardly aware of our own shit.
During this talk we will explore how the current food culture (foodism) can be inspired by pooism with:
Eating designer Marije Vogelzang, head Food & Non Food Design Academy Eindhoven
Jop de Vrieze, journalist and author of Allemaal Beestjes (All bacteria)
Daisy Ginsberg, designer of the E chromi project; a collaboration between designers and scientists in the emerging field of synthetic biology
Marieke Mertens and Pien Vermazeren of the bio art lab
Free entrance including coffee.
