Biocénose alimentaire Projet lauréat du concours national de design "Bien vivre l'espace cuisine à tout âge : repenser le concept global de la cuisine". Ce concours est organisé par l'Association le Mans Créapolis et ses partenaires industriels et institutionnels. Mars 2012 (+info Créapolis - planches concours Download)Projet réalisé par Baptiste Menu et Apolline Fluck Le concept global de la cuisine questionne la morphologie d’un lieu de vie, la densité d’usages qu’il capitalise, son adaptation à la spécificité des besoins de ses usagers et l’interaction avec les pratiques hors habitat qu’il engendre. Dans une prospective de dix ans, la conjecture contemporaine augure une mutation du système économique vers une voie de dématérialisation fondée sur une économie de service. Les innovations technologiques s’accorderont à des innovations organisationnelles ayant potentiel à reconsidérer l’interconnexion de systèmes à plusieurs échelles.

Photo Essay: When a Kid's Bedroom Isn't a Room A few years ago, James Mollison began taking photos of children around the world and their rooms. "I soon realized that my own experience of having a 'bedroom' simply doesn't apply to so many kids," he recalls in his book Where Children Sleep, which collects his images from 18 countries. Striking and unsentimental, Mollison's work shows that wherever a child lies down at night is not so much a retreat from as a reflection of the world outside.

Hungry Planet: What the World Eats Peter Menzel and Faith D’Aluision traveled the world exploring how the eating habits differ from country to country and presented their results in a photo album, called Hungry Planet: What the World Eats. The wife and husband’s team visited 24 different countries and 30 families to photograph them at home, at the market, and surrounded by their weekly food supplies. Apart from being interesting and educative, the project brings up some social issues. The exposed weekly grocery list provides information not only about dietary habits, but also about health, economy, lifestyle, etc. It also clearly shows the division between the first world and the developing countries. Interestingly, less affluent families eat more nutritious food than those who could actually afford it. Come to think of it, how much does your family spend on food per week and what kind of food do you eat? Website: Peter Menzel, Book: What the World Eats Mexico, Cuernavaca The Casales family spends around $189 per week.

Online Speech Bank "Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their captivity." "But one hundred years later, the Negro still is not free. One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination. One hundred years later, the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. "When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. "We refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. Text and Audio of Address

The PlayFood Project by Alicja Pytlewska Royal College of Art graduate Alicja Pytlewska has created a type of video game that can be used to teach children about healthy diets. The concept combines food and interactive technology – and the opportunities that lay between the two. The food eaten by the player effects the on-screen character’s physical performance in challenges. ‘PlayFood focuses on how [food and technology] can be brought together into a playful tasting menu of interactions, a tangible interface to the virtual world, exploring how the experience of the everyday reality can be enhanced by digital technology,’ she explains. Pytlewska says the concept uses video games in a positive way, and while it’s targeted at children it can also be played by individuals of any age.
