Past Futures, an edible insect dinner

This pop up event is a collaborative effort between me, Monica Martinez, and Illya Haro. In this collaboration, we were interested creating an eating experience that would create a dialogue for guests to taste pre-colombian ingredients with insects as sustainable protein futures.

The concrete plate forms (shown above) were specifically designed for the chiniquil corn custard dish. At the night of the event, we presented these plate-forms as a proof of concept.
