Visual Communication – Tay Shi Ying Anthea
ent x ant
Offering an alternative vision and resource to protein, ent x ant is a supermarket installation that places the audience in a possible future where insects and other land-dwelling arthropods become a main protein source and part of one’s daily diet, replacing the proteins from meat we know of today such as chicken, pork, beef and fish. The purpose is to question the possibility of insects as food for first-world nations and critique on our indifference to the highly unsustainable meat-farming methods we exercise today that could potentially drive our meat sources to its end.

In her spare time, Anthea is a cook at heart who loves food, and one with daydreams to ride a whale.
