This hands-on workshop will use the backdrop of the Fantastic Voyage exhibition to explore the history of the Green Revolution and the rise of industrial food production. We will take a closer look at how food has migrated from a source of health and wellness to a co-opted capitalist tool designed to create a dependency on (and some would say addiction to) processed foods and all of its sugar, salt and fat configurations.

Participants will learn how to make pomegranate-cherry gummies as an example of regaining a comprehensive understanding of food for sale versus the food we grow and/or prepare ourselves.

This workshop is offered as part of the Fantastic Voyage exhibition by artists Stefani Bardin and Assaf Tamir. The immersive installation at the Freshkills Park Studio + Gallery explores the role of food production in our personal health and the health of the environment.
