In-vitro meat flower
Posted on 01/11/2013 by Nick van Lanen
The Meat Flower is illustrative for the diminishing of borders between ‘meat’ and ‘vegetarian’ due to emerging technology: although the cultured meat is grown from animal cells, no animals are hurt and injured in the process.
While it is tempting to believe the in-vitro meat technology will be employed merely to mimic existing meat products, we must move beyond creating horseless carriages and explore the creative potential of the technology in its own right.
We like the idea of in-vitro meat going figurative by bringing these issues to the surface. the meat flower is part of the speculative in-vitro cookbook which you can join and support on www.bistro-invitro.com
