Harm to Table, 2016
Various locations in Boulder
ABOUT THE PROJECT
Artist Matthew Mazzotta delivers an experience which materializes abstract concepts around climate change conversations into something physical, something digestible. It’s focus is to directly translate the research of the world’s top climate scientists into an experience where you can actually eat the results of their work.
HARM TO TABLE is a mobile dining experience with a metamorphosing dining table and a focused menu in which each item features an ingredient anticipated to be extinct in the next 20-40 years due to climate change. Born in Boulder Colorado, the home of the highest quantity of federal labs that track the changing climate, the project is traveling the country to stimulate conversation by serving food made of plants and natural resources of the area that will be in major decline or extinct.
