David Lisser is an artist based in Newcastle upon Tyne, and over the next three months he will be working in the Pervasive Media Studio on a new research-led project called meal plans.

Meal plans imagines the future of food as if it were history, and David will work alongside studio residents, futurologists and archaeologists to create pseudo-artefacts and a speculative narrative that will present us with a possible future-history.

His practice concerns tools, technology and our notions of the future, and he makes sculptures that explore their impact on the way we work, communicate, eat and live.

In this talk David will share some of his previous work and discuss how he hopes meal plans might develop.
