This video already has nearly 2 million views so maybe many of you have already seen this. Personally I wouldn’t want to be swallowing one of those so called ‘smart pills’ but I sure do appreciate getting a look at the difference between digesting processed foods and homemade food. Those ramen noodles just never disintegrated, and everything is green from the gatorade the whole time! Uggg–sure glad I don’t eat that stuff anymore, they sure know how to make processed food addictive on every level though.
Artist Stefani Bardin, shows us her latest project — using a “smartpill” to reveal how we digest differently processed foods.
Stefani produces videos and immersive, interactive installations that explores the influences of corporate culture and industrial food production. Her current project works with gastroenterologist Dr. Braden Kuo at Harvard University where they just completed the first ever clinical study to use the M2A™ and SmartPill devices that look at how the human body responds to processed versus whole foods. She is an Honorary Resident at Eyebeam Art +Technology Center in New York and teaches in the School of Art, Media and Technology at Parsons The New School for Design and in the Food Studies Program at The New School for Public Engagement.
