»This visionary pilot project greatly impressed the jury. The comprehension of design beyond the optimisation of individual subjects, but also as a discipline that helps solve the problems of civilisation, is a generalist approach. On the basis of insects, Carolin Schulze produces a mouldable material that is processed through a 3D food printer into known foodstuff forms, thereby conveying the insects into a new ‘state of aggregation’. Processing insects into food is known means of solving future world food problems – therefore, this forward-looking work can be considered exceedingly contemporary and trendsetting.«
