The Australian Future Foods Lab

AFFL_logo-B+W

The Australian Future Foods Lab is an artist collective that seeks to re-ignite tastebuds and the cultural imagination in support of emerging and sustainable food systems.

An initiative of Carbon Arts together with Round Angle Studio and artist Steaphan Paton, the Lab invites innovation and experimentation through unique collaborations involving artists, scientists, chefs and the food industry.

Our focus for early 2013 is native foods that support biodiversity and celebrate the traditional knowledge of Indigenous Australians. Two events with artist Janet Laurence kick off our activities in February.

Radiate Project

Ever wondered what happens to your body when you are exposed to Radiation?

Radiate is a factual motion graphics animation taking people through the concept of radiation, the science, its effects on the human body and an overview of how and which industries produce it.

The artists working on this project are Sam Hoffmann, Paul Kalemba and Nicky Forster. The director Sam Hoffmann will be responsible for the look, narrative and the process. His creative company 4pillars works on education, sustainability and media arts projects throughout Australia. The artist Paul Kalemba will be providing a slick visual style and his amazingly skilled animations. Nicky Forster is an academic, sound designer and writer. She will be creating a sound piece to co-incide with the visual work.

Overseeing the project will be Cat Beaton. Cat has tirelessly worked on Education campaigns across Australia about the Nuclear Industry.
