According to EAT-Lancet: Food is the single strongest lever to optimize human health and environmental sustainability on Earth. However, current food practices are threatening both people and planet. Digital food technologies offer potential for efficient food lifestyles but they present limited opportunity for imagining 'fantastic' food futures. In a bid to extend Human-Food Interaction (HFI) research, this workshop will investigate how to fantasticate nourishing ways to technologically support food practices. Through scenario building, mystery food-tech boxes, Food Tarot cards, and walk-shop, we will feed our senses, fuel imaginations, seek HFI design possibilities and reflect on their potential to nurture healthy, sustainable human-food relationships. The workshop is organized as part of a two-day program titled Experimental Food Design for Sustainable Futures inviting diverse participants interested in contributing toward sustainable socio-ecological transformations.
