Changing Diet? 3D Printing Our Food May be More Sustainable
Myles Louis Day 17 April 2015

With 10kg’s of animal feed you can obtain 1Kg of beef or 9 Kg’s of insect meet. Insects can feed the world. Forecasts challenge us to change our consumption behaviour. People of the western world are scared off by the crustacean’s appearance. The “Bugs Bunny” is a morally and ecologically justifiable counter-concept which gives insect meat a new form. The project visualizes the transition from the known image of a bunny into a grasshopper. 3D printed with mealworms. Project by Carolin Schulze, see the display at Ventura Lambrate this week.

I am South African and I am 26 years old. Initially trained in the fine arts, a change in study choice led me to complete an honors degree in industrial design in 2013. Here I was educated about the product development process with projects that included conceptualizing and engineering products fit for manufacture. Product design, design drawing, manufacturing technology, engineering, business, and industrial design history were my majors in this course.
