Related to Susette’s Wrong Campaign, isn’t it?

Ministry of Stories & Hoxton Street Monster Supplies
“The Ministry follows the model of the 826 centres: a writing centre where kids aged 8-18 can get one-to-one tuition with professional writers and other volunteers; with the centres being housed behind fantastical shop fronts designed to fire the kids’ imaginations (and generate income for the writing centres).”
I’m going to try and volunteer for this

Food Assistance

http://www.good.is/post/transparency-the-growth-of-food-stamps/

While some economists are declaring the recession over, and although the stock market continues to rise, those on the bottom of the economic ladder are seeing fewer improvements to their day-to-day lives. The number of Americans who receive assistance from the government in the form of food stamps continues to rise-the total number of food stamp recipients is now up to more than 10 percent of the total population. Here is how many people have been using food stamps for the nine months from September, 2008, to last May.”

Dead But Not Wasted

Roadkill meets gourmet cuisine in this wicked campaign by Susette.

Dead But Not Wasted does several things: It refers to our growing numbness and disability to empathize or even be shocked by certain conditions. At the same time it addresses our ignorance to what we eat. It shows how we want to be deceived - not to question further than the label or the price tag. And it opens up the possibility of a rare, new food source - who knows maybe it is even tasty and somewhat nutritious.. at least no animals were harmed in the process…

Paradise gained, paradise lost

Imagine there was a pill that would feed all of us..

No more grocery shopping distress.

No one would have to work to get nutrition.

Would the introduction of the pill mean the end to economic crisis?

The answer to saving energy?

We would all stay slim and would have more time to exercise.

Would we all look the same, too?

Imagine a world where there was a pill and no more food… what reasons would we have to gather for a romantic picnic? What would we do with all the hours and energy and resources spend in the production, preparing, consumption and celebration of food..

Looking through Coca Cola

Dustin was unsettled by a documentary he had seen on the scenes behind the scenes of this mega enterprise. In faithful détournement manner he approached CC’s wrong side and appropriated its style and visual language to almost innocently tell another truth..

Why always so healthy..

Let’s admit it there is also the right time for the wrong food. Francesca thoroughly scouted Berlin for junk pearls and created this map for the after hours.

"FOOD JUNKYARD IS AN ILLUSTRATED MAP OF THE MOST TASTY URBAN HOTSPOTS TO FILL YOUR BELLY. FROM YOUR UNSTOPPABLE SWEET TOOTH TO THOSE LATE NIGHT CRAVINGS. 

THE MAP HIGHLIGHTS LOCATIONS TO EAT WHERE THE PORTIONS ARE BIG, A FAIR PRICE AND AN INTERESTING ATMOSHPHERE.”

Food Systems Research Synopsis

by Bland Hoke

Food Systems are complex, interconnected and widespread networks of individuals, organizations, and consumables. In researching the urban food ecosystem in Hunts Point, the Food Systems group sought to understand three segments of the system including: the influences public and private organizations have on food distribution; large aid organizations’ influence on the distribution of food to low income populations, and the infrastructures of food. The team used methods that included literary research, fieldwork, interviews, and observations.”
