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 illustrations that were used in the menu and social media graphics derived from our eating landscape concept development of each dish. The menu emerged as a risograph poster for guests to take home as a memento of this eating experience.
