High & Low Tech Food Lab
Borders Sessions The Hague is a four day tech culture festival with a varied program of talks, labs, movies and meet-ups. One of the lab programs was organised and hosted in a collaboration between The Hague University of Applied Sciences and The New Farm.
In the ‘High & Low Tech Food Lab’ we explored the future of food in urban environments both from a high tech and low tech view point. Talks and workshops were given by Wythe Marschall, Slow Food Den Haag, Haagse Zwam and Matthijs Diederiks. Chef Yuri Verbeek cooked some shrimps in the washing machine while sharing some of his creative food projects during lunch.
Throughout the day, an urban food network map was made to visually link the participants of the food lab for future connections.
The organisation was part of the Food Webs by Design research within the research group Innovation Networks of The Hague University of Applied Sciences.
