a species of ‘edible monsters’ infills the display windows at la rinascente department store in milan, forming six dynamic, quirky and colorful scenes unfolding across piazza del duomo. despite their seemingly playful presentation, the installation aims to raise awareness about the excesses of the food industry, specifically the chemical ingredients used and how they affect the food we eat.
french duo lucie thomas and thibault zimmermann of zim & zou have created ‘edible monsters’ in tandem with expo milano 2015, adopting the theme ‘feeding the planet, energy for life’. made from 3-dimensional models and intricately cut, colorful paper pieces emblematic of their work, zim & zou illustrate carnivorous sunflowers, mutant fish, genetic manipulations and genetically modified corncob, which come to life to emphasize how the use of chemicals and aggressive farming methods can be harmful to our health.
