The Next Meal is an artwork comprising of six recipes designed from an imagination of how people will balance consumption with the state of the environment in the future, in particular the artist’s homeland of Taiwan. With the prevalence of waste and pollutants in our food supply, will these contaminants become part of our diet too? These recipes are a fusion of environmental pollutants, scrap and waste fused with food ingredients to make seafood cuisines.
