Massia Officinale – Massia platform – Estonia

Massia Officinale – Massia platform – Estonia | ArtTechFood | Scoop.it
Massia Officinale* – A radical herb garden in rural Estonia. Massia Officinale is the working title for a medicinal wild herb garden in progress. Located on the grounds of Massia, a platform for artists, scientists, political activists and any individual or group that wants to think change radically. 

The building used to be a school built in the 1930s and has been re-imagined as a place for radical work in 2016. One of the visions for 2018, and beyond, is to create a space for radical herbal practice and research. Drawing connections between the herbal landscape of the surroundings and the medicinal herb garden to the practical space of a herb lab and apothecary for transforming plants into medicine and nutrition, and to a space for research and discourse where we can engage with the social, philosophical and political spheres of radical herb work and connect with artists, scientists, political activists and other individuals or groups for extended explorations of ecologies in the Anthropocene.

Food for Thought -  Raúl Ortega Ayala exhibition at PROYECTOSMONCLOVA May - June 2017

Food for Thought -  Raúl Ortega Ayala exhibition at PROYECTOSMONCLOVA May - June 2017 | ArtTechFood | Scoop.it

To eat is to respond to need in the form of hunger and desire in the form of appetite. In Food for Thought Raúl Ortega Ayala serves up a visceral response to scenes of the gastronomically grotesque that occurs when alimentary consumption is decoupled from the need much less desire for food. The result of a three year long anthropological-like process of embedding himself in the food business, Ortega Ayala revels in the ecstatic psychology of action disassociated from reason, and offers the body as sensory receptor of the pleasures derived from the “gustatory abject”. 


Cultural identity consolidates as much around notions of taste as it does around dis-taste, since in consecrating the sacred we simultaneously define the profane. The concept of taste therefore is an ever-evolving reflection of social values. It becomes then a moving and wholly abstracted target around which collective agreement is sought to achieve social cohesion with the purpose of distinguishing the erudite from uncouth.

SPURSE » Eat Your SIdewalk Cookbook

SPURSE » Eat Your SIdewalk Cookbook | ArtTechFood | Scoop.it
Spurse, a creative design consultancy that focuses on social, ecological and ethical transformation, have published EAT YOUR SIDEWALK COOKBOOK. 

"Eat Your Sidewalk is just what it says. We believe that it is time to change everything about how we eat, think about food and engage with our urban ecosystems. We believe it is time to start foraging and eating our sidewalks. Change needs to begin right where we are. Foraging the weeds in the cracks of our streets right under our feet, and not in some far off pristine forest, is a delicious joyous activity that has the capacity to spark deep and far reaching ecological change. When you bend down a pick a dandelion growing from a crack in the street, what has happened to this plant now happens to you — your fates are joined. You are of this place in a way you have never been. This is a profound act with important consequences for us, these weeds, our eating habits and our sense of place."

Ruth Borgenicht | Share Fare: An Experiment in Communal Eating | ArtTechFood | Scoop.it
A new way of eating and interacting emerged at this experimental communal dinner. Exquisite food was prepared by Halcyon Brasserie in Montclair NJ and served in vessels I created. The participants shared, coordinated and discovered how to eat together with connected bowls, long spoons, desserts with secret compartments and other strange tools. The whole group bonded as they figured out the best way to maneuver and eat in a collaborative way.

Landscape Within, by Michael Burton & Michiko Nitta @BurtonNitta #arttechfood #anthropocene

Landscape Within, by Michael Burton & Michiko Nitta @BurtonNitta #arttechfood #anthropocene | ArtTechFood | Scoop.it

Landscape Within, 2016-2017 

The gut is a remarkable open-ended tube and an independently functioning organ that runs through us. It not only links us to the environment and invites the landscape within us, it is also an organ that connects us to an ancestry of animal evolution. It is an intersection of our past human activities evident in the environmental contaminants that find themselves within us through food and exposure and it navigates our futures including it’s influences on health, IQ and personality. 


 In the late Anthropocene future, where there is no escape from the contaminated landscape, the familiar saying of ‘we are what we eat’ is revised to also include ‘we are where we live’. 


What cultural customs will emerge and how will food be transformed in this new world? 


The work is supported by a Wellcome Arts Award and made in collaboration with Dr Louise Horsfall, and the Horsfall Lab at the University of Edinburgh and Dr Susan Hodgson, researcher and lecturer in Environmental Epidemiology and Exposure Assessment at Imperial College London.
