Print-a-Meal

dezeen_3D-printed-food-by-Janne-Kytannen_1

We wrote recently about new technologies using 3D printing in healthcare, with amazing printed organs and limbs. Chocolate is already a popular material that was easily adapted to a 3D printer. But hamburgers and pasta? Designer Janne Kyttanen printed hamburger and pasta shapes in plastic and plaster – to get ideas rolling on applying the technology to the food we eat. Kyttanen’s pasta shapes are intricate, ornamental forms, while his burgers are doubled-up, oddly morphed versions of the familiar, showing the possibilities in the future.

Bookshelf: What We’re Reading

books

There’s a lot happening these days at Wert&Co.–reflected in six books we would like to share with you. We’ve been preparing for a few talks and seeking to understand ourselves and our work more deeply, finding inspiration from the self discovery of childhood to the wisdom (hopefully) gained over the years. This month we also mourned the loss of John Berger who’s seminal Ways of Seeing provided us not just with a tool to view art in a revolutionary way, but a tool to understand critically the images that surround us. Finally with data ruling the day, in both politics and our work, we’ve found ourselves recently in a deep dive on both the mechanics, design and ethics of this fascinating subject.

 

Oh yes, the planet is sublime!

I have a crazy,
crazy love of things.
I like pliers,
and scissors.
I love
cups,
rings,
and bowls –
not to speak, of course,
of hats.
I love
all things,
not just
the grandest,
also
the
infinite-
ly
small–
thimbles,
spurs,
plates,
and flower vases.
Oh yes,
the planet
is sublime!
