A Meal Fit For Futurists
What does a meal attempting to subvert our commonly held conceptions of food actually look like?
Futurism, which recently celebrated its one hundredth anniversary, was a multidisciplinary movement that sought to catapult Italy to the forefront of modernity by favoring speed, technology, youth and a “by any means necessary attitude” over the ways of the past. Though rather short lived, many of the ideas espoused by the group remain relevant, albeit at the fringes within our culture today, through such diverse manifestations as the cyberpunk genre and transhumanism.
In celebration of Futurism’s lasting legacy, its radical philosophies and the cookbook it inspired, artist Karen Azoulay invented a meal to bring the movement to life. The result was a one-of-a-kind eating experience that played with technique, presentation, flavor combinations and the interplay of senses. Just in time for the holidays ReadyMade shares photos from the event along with a step-by-step guide to create a forward-thinking dinner party of your own.
