Orkan Telhan, Breakfast Before Extinction

Orkan Telhan, Breakfast Before Extinction, 2019

A series of mediations on the future of the human diet. From steaks made of human cells to extinct bananas and genetically-modified fish, this table stages a number of scenarios where our relationship with food is interrogated. The installation is commissioned by the Designs for Different Futures exhibition and is featured at the Philadelphia Museum of Art (September - March 2019) then at the Walker Art Center, and the Art Institute of Chicago.
