Food Imitates Life

Usually when your meal is moving, it’s not cooked all the way. However, in designer Minsu Kim’s new project, Living Food, the movement is the meal. She uses a method of synthetic biology to create edible dishes that have the qualities of living things: expanding and contracting as if breathing, wriggling on the plate, or gently waving tentacles.

Since this is artificial life, it’s not a breathing animal you’re eating, but you can eat it, and it’s quite fascinating to watch your meal move.

What sparked our fire: Visualizing food in unique ways, both as edible and as art.

Will this revolutionize the way we see food? Or change the way chefs plate their dishes?
