+ CULINARY JOURNEY (Vegetable Vendetta)
By
Jeroen van der Most
“Culinary Journey” aims to transform food logistics data into diverse visual documentaries and movies using creative AI methodologies. This project promises to deliver captivating visual narratives around food consumption.

+ ECOSHROOM
By Ivan Henriques
Through an interactive living installation, “Ecoshroom” delves into in-soil symbiotics with mycorrhizal fungi. This project explores the fascinating world of fungal decision-making and its potential impact on future crop resilience and growth.

+ FOOD DYSMORPHIA (What the Food?)
By Bernat Cuní
Utilizing generative AI and computer vision technologies, this project will use reality filters to narrate food realities and uncover untold stories, shedding light on system failures and food-related issues.

+ FUTURE PROTEIN
By IM-A Studio
With a focus on mussels as a sustainable protein source, this project aims to create a Mussel ID system for food transparency. Additionally, a series of products made from mussel shells will be developed, adding value to this vital marine resource.

+ MVP x FFF
By The Center for Genomic Gastronomy
“Minimum Viable Protein x Food Forest Flavours” pioneers a dual-circulation food system connecting alternative proteins and agroforestry produce. The project aims to harmonize rhythms and flavor compounds, offering sustainable farming solutions.

+ SYMBIOSIS.AI
By
Frederik De Wilde
This project envisions a post-agrarian data-driven infrastructure that utilizes AI and blockchain to sense, monitor, visualize, and enhance ecological performance. Focused on understanding plant stress in times of climate change, it aims to foster resilience in natural systems.

+ SYMPOSIO
By Yiannis Kranidiotis
“SYMPOSIO” seeks to redefine tableware design for sustainable and enjoyable dining experiences. AI-optimized designs will be developed by researching eating cultures worldwide, collecting data on food consumption behaviors, and generating new designs for tableware.

+ THE COUNCIL OF FOODS
By Nonhuman Nonsense
This project aims to give food a voice by imbuing it with personality and agency through an experimental assembly of food AI. The exploration of AI in food ethics is at the heart of this fascinating endeavor.
