Food is a basic necessity, that also makes for a repository of culture, history and a powerful tool to bring about change. Having tackled issues such as climate change and loss of diversity, Akash demonstrates the competence that this relatively new branch of design possesses, with projects such as "Cook and See" exploring indigenous vegetables and "New National Dish - UAE" discussing the effects of diversity. Food is ever-evolving, dynamic and cosmopolitan- yet, it plays a crucial role in defining the identity of a region and its people. This talk brings the promise of a new perspective, and food for thought, quite literally.
Akash Muralidharan is a food designer, using new means to deliver powerful messages to his audience. He strongly believes that innovation in the 21st century, combined with out-of-the-box creativity, can make for a potent tool. Even more so with food, something so commonplace, yet associated with significant connotations of identity and emotion. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
