SIXTH MASS EXTINCTION
MENU / SNACKS:
Chocolate & insects: meal worms, buffalo worms crickets & locusts
Climate fluctuation in cocao growing countries is encouraging viruses passed from insect vectors to causing wide-spread devastation amongst the ‘chocolate’ crop.
The SIXTH MASS EXTINCTION event is underway as we leave the Holocence and signal in the Anthropocene (human-centric era). Entirely a man-made extinction, this project looks at food sources and their ecologies which are threatened with extinction and those which will thrive in this seismic shift.
