In May 2013, I was invited to be one of Pixelache’s food-info-activism micro-residents. During my time in Helsinki, I spent time with several members of Pixelache, Ruoan Tulevaisuus, and Pixelache’s earlier food-info-activism resident, Seungho Lee, developing ideas for the Foodycle event. In September 2013, I was granted a HIAP residency to return to Helsinki. The timing was planned so that I could continue my Art/Tech/Food research, while in residency at HIAP’s incredible Suomenlinna facility, and the timing was in part planned to coincide with Foodycle on 12-13 September.
Day One of the event will take place at Viikki, outdoors on the Library square, University of Helsinki Viikki campus (Viikinkaari 11) – MAP
I will present on my research at the intersection of Art/Tech/Food. In the talk, I will map historical and contemporary trade routes of food and how they affect our cultural landscape and well being, by presenting the work of a range of artists addressing these issues. I’ll also be moderating a panel on Food Culture.
Check my scoop.it aggregator page for links to a broad cross section of artist projects, reading lists, and exhibitions.
My presentation will be online shortly.
Panels were streamed and archived live on Pixelache’s Bambuser pages:
