Don’t Forget to Eat Slowly

by Olga Olivares

This project stems from the concern to learn more about the species behind my favorite dishes and the curiosity to understand
and question the actual relationship between humans and food. Our disconnection with nature is driving us closer to a dystopian
reality and reminding us of the simplicity of life matters. Food is the primary source of human energy, it is what keeps us alive and we have taken it for granted.

Food systems and food consumption transformation are fundamental to global sustainable development. How is it possible - through design - to create alternative imaginaries of food consumption for an immediate future?

In this project, Don’t forget to eat slowly; I propose a space to reflect, rethink, and revalue our relationship with edible species.
Storytelling to create a contemporary food ritual to experience within a fictional scenario, a metaphor of human-nature negotiation.
