Imagine a world without chocolate? That’s just what artists, Miriam Simun and Miriam Songster, have done with their collaborative project, Ghost Food.
According to Edible Geography: ‘From a street-parked GhostFood truck, Simun and Songster and their team of trained staff will be serving a menu of three items, each of which conjures up a future dining experience for a food whose supply is currently threatened by climate change. The three items on offer — cod, chocolate, and peanut butter — come from or are species that “may very well soon not be available to eat,” Simun explains. With the help of a wearable smell-dispensing device and an edible textural analogue, GhostFood truck customers will experience a simulation of a future phantom food.”
It’s said that the apparatus was inspired by insect physiology, as insects use their antennae to navigate the world through scent.
What food couldn’t you live without?
