Blenderized bravery

Collecting some links--A brave subculture of caretaker cooks feed the tube with purees produced from perishable ingredients. Such practices resist empty larders stocked with simulations of sustenance...

and then of course, the first one I found:

Family tree quest

via PlumpiƱon, I have met some of my extended family! I'm thrilled by this--I couldn't think of a better way for the work to have traveled and returned. I'm writing this from London, where I am organizing a symposium for PLOS next week. Tomorrow: Kew Gardens, most fecund & rich edible & postcolonial territory.

Rural Alchemy Workshop covers the Multispecies Meal at Goddard College

R.A.W. wrote up the Multispecies Meal!

Multispecies Picnic-goers also had the opportunity to sample Lindsay Kelley’s Plumpinon, tearing with teeth into one of the bright-colored, recycled plastic bags that contain Kelley’s latest Starvation Seeds recipe. Plumpinon is a nut paste in which the artist employs the traditional “starvation nut” of her native New Mexico as a means to interrogate Nutriset’s patented humanitarian aid food, Plumpy’nut. Many who tasted the Plumpinon were pleasantly surprised to discover that an erudite and thought-provoking microbiopolitical intervention could taste so damn good.

Thanks for being there, eating, and writing, R.A.W.!

reading list

Two recent recommendations from Boing Boing science blogger Maggie Koerth-Baker have caught my attention:

Paleofuture Magazine has a new (print) issue out about "past visions of future food."

And Sera Young has written Craving Earth: Understanding Pica--the Urge to Eat Clay, Starch, Ice, and Chalk.

feeding objects

I don't know why I find this website compelling, but, it really, weirdly, is. How decadent to have an extra piece of cheese for your cell phone (maybe my favorite picture there), and intriguing that we might relate to objects in terms of feeding.

(via boingboing)

The site also links to the hunger project, suggesting that feeding objects is somehow connected to human hunger.

following my stuff to santa fe

I decided to go to Santa Fe. Realistically, I will only be there for my panel and maybe one other panel/Donna Haraway's talk. But, how often do I have two things to present in one conference? I should be there.

So, see you at La Fonda on Friday, I hope.

Details here.
