OPEN AG LAB – THE CENTER FOR GENOMIC GASTRONOMY (US/NO/IE)
Time to get your hands dirty: the Open Ag Lab presents some of the cutting-edge research being field-tested on farms right now. Learn to save seeds, teach a computer about bee health and grow your own urban oyster mushrooms in coffee grounds.
ABOUT FIELD TEST
If anything, this exhibition raises more questions than it does answers. Will we make hay while the sun shines, or when the sensors say? Will visionaries and dreamers reinvent farms as on-demand food forests, skyscrapers, or even theme parks? What crops should we be cultivating now for a very different future: bacon-flavoured seaweed, heirloom potatoes, or fly meat steaks? FIELD TEST will bring you into dialogue with a range of artworks, products, farm hacks, robotics and microfarms that are real field tests: experiments at the boundaries of art, design, science and farming.
