At the Designing Interactive Systems (DIS) 2020 conference, we co-organised a two-day online workshop Experimental Food Design for Sustainable Futures (July 6-7 2020). The workshop experimented with food as bio-design material and socio-culturally potent, aesthetically rich starting point from which to critically reflect on social and ecological uncertainties. Participants co-designed scenarios, prototypes and artifacts, engage in foraging ‘walk-shops’ in their kitchens and pantries, and proposed diverse imaginative approaches to nurture transformations towards positive sustainable futures.
