Artist Minsu Kim has created plates of concept food that might gross you out from eating them.

Titled ‘Living Food’, he serves plates of artificial food that pulsate and move—as if they are still alive and breathing.

Exploring developments in synthetic biology, he envisions a future where “food behaves like a living creature entertaining us through an empathic connection”.

“What if food was able to play with our cutlery and create hyper-sensations in our mouth?” wrote Kim. “Synthetic biotech has already started to create artificial life in organic forms; breathing life into artificial digestible forms [is] not merely a fantasy.”


“In this respect I propose a future dining experience where food takes a life-form. In a material way, I experiment which kinds of impressions could be designed into the life-like food and how out would affect our dining experience.”
