My name is Jackie Chow. I'm a 4th year digital media student from Victoria University. I’m currently doing a group project for a design paper “Design Led Futures” which focuses on the enhanced design concepts for the future.
Our project is designed to look into the lives of human being’s, 80 years in the future. Our theme is based around “plants” and the benefits they could provide for us in the distant future. Our design touches on four different aspects: architecture, communication, energy and nutrition. I am focusing on hybrid food design, nutrition.
My concept for a future hybrid food is a concentrated liquid that contains all the nutritional aspects a human needs. In the future, I believe humans will not need to eat a variety of foods such as meats, vegetables and fruits etc to achieve the required intake of nutrition our bodies need today. Instead I propose this is possible through a manipulated substance that contains H20, fats, carbohydrates, fiber, proteins, vitamins and minerals.
In order to complete the project to a convincible level, I need some professional advice or opinion. It would be a great help to my group and I if you can help us to answer a few questions.
What are the everyday basic nutritional requirement for a human, as in the average percentage for each nutritional aspect (such as how many percent of the nutrition needed for carbohydrates, how many percent needed for fats, water etc)?
Do you believe that human can survive by feeding on the proposed manipulated substance that contains only the required amount of nutritions needed for human body?
Please comment on the proposed hybrid food in a short paragraph.
Please describe the proposed hybrid food in 3 to 5 keywords.
Please advise on any improvement, or areas of refinement needed for the proposed concept in order to achieve a more convincible design.
