The Museum of Future Food

The Museum of Future Food is an artwork with the aim of engaging audiences with current thinking on food and sustainability through the creation of fictional futures. The objects in the Museum are provocations, intended to encourage exploration of the drivers and dynamics of change including culture, technology, politics, science, economics and climate change.

The Museum of Future Food is a prototype developed for the Nil by Mouth programme, a 15 month programme of residencies and workshops with food producers and scientists exploring food, art, science, sustainability and public engagement. It was previewed at The Scottish Parliament in November 2015. The installation consists of a series of museum exhibits, accompanying catalogue and audio. The Scenarios were developed in collaboration with Prof Christine Watson from SRUC Aberdeen. Further information

Museum of the FutureNow workshops use the Museum of Future Food installation to introduce participants to the workshop concepts.
