Future Food Formula
High-tech cultivation

By 2030, our modern kitchen will be equipped with its own futurist greenhouse. We’ll sow some seeds and download a growth recipe to get our tomatoes to grow just how we like them. Purple or orange? With extra vitamin C? And perfectly ripe for the next dinner party. We’ll be able to control the climate and cultivate our very own perfect vegetables. Deliberate manipulation of crops is already happening. We can grow crops in hypermodern greenhouses using growth recipes: predetermined combinations of light colours, amounts of brightness, water and CO2. Growth specifications can ensure optimal productivity, specific flavours and interesting textures. Step into the shoes of a high-tech farmer and design your own growth recipe with the Future Food Formula. How does your input affect the crop? Would you still recognize it as a tomato, after you have transformed it? Future Food Formula is a project by Chloé Rutzerveld in collaboration with Next Nature Network, Organism Studios and Utrecht University.
