GREEN RUSH is a project sharing food talking series._

Amanda McDonald Crowley presents her research at the intersection of 
art, food and technology. As a curatorial project, ArtTechFood is a 
strategy to bring biologists, environmentalists, food activists, and 
molecular gastronomists, together with artists to deliver an 
interdisciplinary programme that critiques the commercialization of 
food production, provides a space to widen the discussion of our food 
systems to include environmental issues and labor (immigrant) 
exploitation, and the framework to share good food and meaningful 
conversation. The inclusion of artists and experts from diverse 
backgrounds is intended to broaden the discourse and move toward 
models of discussion and action in order to negotiate this often 
obfuscated and confusing landscape.

As the gastronome Brillat-Savarin noted three centuries ago, "the 
discovery of a new dish does more for human happiness than the 
discovery of a new star." Food is an essential product of our 
reciprocal, sustaining relationship with the environment. It is also 
one of the oldest cultural expressions, rooted in hospitality and 
sharing. As concerns for the planet and the quality of our life upon 
it intensify, there is no more immediate concern than that which we 
put into our mouths and the pressures these acts place on the larger 
systems that sustain us.

Amanda McDonald Crowley is a cultural worker, curator, facilitator, 
creative director in the fields of media and contemporary art, with a 
focus on cross-disciplinary practice and cultural exchange. She was 
the director of ANAT 1995-2000; associate director of the Adelaide 
Festival 2002; executive producer of ISEA2004 in Helsinki and 
Tallinn; executive director at EYEBEAM, NYC 2005-2011. Recent 
curatorial efforts include Our Haus, the 10th Anniversary exhibition 
for the Austrian Cultural Forum, NY. Her other current research 
interests are virtual performance, art & science, and urban research. 
She is currently doing a curatorial research residency at Fondazione
