victimless meat

Scientists are developing methods of growing meat in labs using animal cells. This area of research, called In Vitro-Cultured Meat Production raises all sorts of complex issues about the meaning of food, our relationship to animals (and nature), human values and behaviours, and even taboos.

The purpose of the project is to explore how design can be used as a medium to draw attention to the social, cultural and ethical implications of "cultured meat". Your design proposals should pose questions rather than provide answers, making complex issues tangible, and therefore debatable.
