Eating In Vitro: Meat Paint

Van Mensvoort
February 18th 2013

Beyond imitating known meat products like steaks and hamburgers, in-vitro meat could give rise to entirely new food products and dining habits.

Paint with meat! is a speculative product for children of 5-10 years old. It allows them to prepare their own meat dish in a very creative, fun and safe way: by painting! The meat paint lets children put some extra effort into their meal, which makes the dinner more valuable and meaningful again. By painting their own meal children get more affinity with their food and are therefore more willing to eat it.

Like with a regular painting, the child has different colors to paint with. With this paint the child can make anything he or she wants and create something beautiful. Once the drawing is finished the painting is baked for 15 minutes in the oven. So it’s not just your child’s beautiful creation, it becomes a tasty meat dish too which the entire family can enjoy and eat!

Designed by Ilse Maessen for the Eating in Vitro series.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
