Philips Food Design Probes

August 20th, 2009

Food Design Probes is a research project by Philips. They developed ideas how we will eat and source our food in the future, like in 15 to 20 years. There are 3 products we might have in our homes by then:

The Nutrition Monitor. It basically has 3 parts, a sensor which you have to swallow, a scanner which can measure the nutritional value of food and a display device. So you’ll exactly know what your body needs and what kind of effect your food will have on it.

The Food Printer. Remember the 3D sugar printer? Well, this is the next generation. The machine brings molecular gastronomy to your kitchen. “Feed” is with some ingredients, pick a shape, let it print … and voilà your amazing 3D dish is ready. I can’t wait to see all the opensource 3D recipes that will be available!

Green Pink Caviar is an eight minute high definition video by Marilyn Minter. She filmed some models licking candy and cake decoration, from under a pane of glass. Very lush!

The mouth is one of her favorite subjects. She paints some of her photographs on metal with translucent enamel paint to produce luminous finish. And they are huge, this first image “Quails Egg” measures 7 by 4 foot. The 2 other images are large C-Prints.
