primary & secondary research:
Urban lifestyles lack connection to food on nutrition and geographic levels. Can design offer a platform for closer connection to our food that is applicable to an array of urban contexts?
- Must be applicable to all income levels and neighborhoods
- Model must adapt to diverse urban contexts
- Playshop – participants responded to prompts about their relationships with food
- Desk research – uncovering links between healthy decision making and community involvement and support
An adaptable tabletop within different urban contexts with community-developed art and food information intended to initiate conversations about systemic effects our food system creates. Information including production, distribution, culture, nutrition and beyond.
