ENSAAMA Olivier de Serres - School of Design and Art- Paris
STEAM CELLS is a banquet for wonders. It investigates near realities and hyper fantasies and it explores the implications of current and emerging technologies through the presentation of fictional but eatable scenarios, parallel worlds, extrapolated tangents, cautionary tales and design fictions.
Inspired by the science and technology developed by the stem cells laboratory I-Stem in Evry, France, the following proposals use culinary and textile design as a medium to speculate, be critical and stimulate debate around our human relationship to science and technology.
Steam Cells is a research laboratory, a collaborative experiment that brings together Textile Design MA students from the School of art and design: ENSAAMA Olivier de Serres in Paris around the implementation of a culinary experience and its scientific and speculative context.
