Project Nourished

Originally started in a warehouse on the Skid Row of Los Angeles, Project Nourished is a public-benefit initiative with a goal of maximizing therapeutic and utilitarian qualities of consumables while limiting environmental effects and the use of natural resources.

Its platform consisting of embedded tableware, AI framework and schematics for consumables—food, beverage and medicine. The derived experience is designed to heighten sensations and simultaneously produce therapeutic effects by altering the motions, forms, colors, scents and temperature of consumables through use of proven and emerging technologies.

The project was founded on a premise that the full potential of consumables has not been wholly realized, and there needs to be a greater emphasis on redefining the food system. Along with our global and local community involvements, our vision is to diversify methods of consumption and extend the utility of consumables.
