ADS4: IMMORTALITY

In a future where big business has subverted the ethical agenda, could Nestlé Rowntree exploit the infrastructure of a new high-speed rail service to convince a confectionery-obsessed nation to buy into their newly synthesised healthy sweets?

This project explores the difficult ethical questions surrounding the future of food production in the UK. In a speculative future where Nestlé’s synthesised confectionery has revolutionised the healthcare system by offering preventative healthcare to genome-sequenced masses, I propose that Nestlé exploit the infrastructure of a new high-speed rail service, to cultivate, manufacture and dispense their healthy sweets to hoards of commuters.
