Planetary Sculpture Supper Clubs explore the ways planetary patterns change in response to how and what humans eat.


How do we sculpt the planet through our food choices? What is the relationship between taste & place within a globalized food network?

The Planetary Sculpture Supper Club: Arctic Circle Edition at the Neptun Restaurant in Melbu looks at how a community at the periphery of the global food network takes advantage of its regional resources, and where it bumps up against the limits of seasonal eating and government policy. Does geographical remoteness and an extreme environment create conditions for re-localizing a food culture or necessitate a reliance on exchange in order to eat well? Working with Chef Neumann of the Neptun Restaurant, we co-present a meal which embodies the challenges and joys of eating at the edge of the Earth.  

The Planetary Sculpture Supper Club is a collection of foods, recipes and stories that typify some of the ways humans unconsciously sculpt the planet’s biosphere through eating habits, flavour preferences and food technologies. We hold this semi-regular Supper Club in order to explore and document the co-evolution of gastronomy and larger ecological, technological and political systems. They have been held in India, UK, Ireland, Germany, Netherlands, Portugal, Norway and the United States.
