Eat, Cook, Grow

Item Details

Our contemporary concerns about food range from food security to agriculturalsustainability to getting dinner on the table for family and friends. This book investigates foodissues as they intersect with participatory Internet culture -- blogs, wikis, online photo- andvideo-sharing platforms, and social networks -- in efforts to bring about a healthy, sociallyinclusive, and sustainable food future. Focusing on our urban environments provisioned with digitaland network capacities, and drawing on such "bottom-up" sociotechnical trends as DIY andopen source, the chapters describe engagements with food and technology that engender (re-)creativeinteractions. In the first section, "Eat," contributors discuss technology-aidedapproaches to sustainable dining, including digital communication between farmers and urbanconsumers and a "telematic" dinner party at which guests are present electronically. Thechapters in "Cook" describe, among other things, "smart" chopping boards thatencourage mindful eating and a website that supports urban wild fruit foraging. Finally,"Grow" connects human-computer interaction with achieving a secure, safe, and ethical foodsupply, offering chapters on the use of interactive technologies in urban agriculture, efforts totrace the provenance of food with a "Fair Tracing" tool, and other projects.
