Although we seem to think and talk about food almost constantly, do we really know how best to preserve it or do we leave this responsibility to technology? Design Academy Eindhoven graduate Jihyun Ryou feels we no longer understand how to treat food.
After investigating how to preserve food through oral traditions, she was determined to find designfull solutions on how to survive without fridge nowadays. Her Save Food from the Fridge project involves placing certain foods on a group of “knowledge shelves” outside the fridge. Perhaps through a better relationship with our food we may be able to waste less and conserve more energy.
