3D Printed Food at Display in the Museum of Design Atlanta
Food by Design exhibition takes a closer look at the future of agriculture and food industry. It features ZMorph 2.0 SX with Thick Paste Extruder for 3D printed food.
People at the Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA) believe that creative process of design can solve problems, transform lives, and make the world a better place. Food by Design is their latest project with over 50 exhibits showcasing various innovations in growing, processing, and preparation of food. It explores how the farms of the future could look like and 3D printed food is one these possibilities.
3D printed food and much more
Janelle Miniter, MODA’s exhibitions manager, described her idea for Food by Design in an interview with Northside Neighbour:
The goal of this exhibit is to highlight the many innovative designs and promising solutions to the unique set of problems facing the urban environment that the current food system does not adequately address.
The exhibition features several solutions and machines that are already available for food processing or break ground for future applications. Among them are PancakeBot and ZMorph 2.0 SX multitool 3D printer with Thick Paste Extruder able to print 2D and 3D objects with various pastes, including chocolate, avocado, cheese, and cake. Using such machines, companies are able to find new real-life applications of food 3D printing.
Visitors can also check various ways of growing food in artificial environments, explore bold concepts for increasing food sustainability, health, and decreasing wastefulness. One of the most interesting futuristic concepts is Tomorrow’s Meatballs. This art project explore the many ways food could be processed into small but nutritious 3D printed food balls.
Go and see for yourself
Food by Design in MODA gives hope that worldwide food distribution could be made more equitable, while people themselves would become more aware of how to make healthier dietary choices. The exhibition in Atlanta is open until May 7th.
