The Citizen Food Bomb, designed by Polly Johnson was exhibited in Milan as part of the show. The Citizen Food Bomb subverts the meaning of the “bomb” from an instrument of death to an instrument of life. The food bomb delivers hope and and nourishment while the deadly bomb brings death and destruction. The food bomb should be shared by all citizens on the planet. It is a reminder of the potential for nourishment over opression and life over death. This was the only piece exhibited from the United States.
We have an appreciation for well prepared food and for the countless generations of cooks that have tasted, tested and documented their recipes. This has made it possible for us to experience a bit of culinary history, cultures and the infinite possibility of taste.
