Design Observer
2016 Taste.
A symposium on food + visual culture
Friday, February 12, 2016 at 8:30AM

The Los Angeles Theater Center
514 South Spring Street
Los Angeles, CA 90013

Agrarian economics. Dry farming. Engineered waste. Vaporized nutrition. How are any of these things a function of design? On the other hand: how could they be anything else? On February 12, 2016, Design Observer will host a symposium on the relationship between design and food. Held in the Los Angeles Theater Center, Taste will feature speakers from across the United States and Europe: we’ll hear from a historian who has traced the origins of artificial flavor; an engineer who has discovered how to nebulize nutrients; and a politician lobbying for national food security. We’ll look at marketing tactics and distribution platforms; climate change and culinary excess; new economies of scale, old expressions of culture—and everything in between.  We’ll eat, drink, and be merry, while raising critical questions about where the future of food is headed.
