Still life – Food waste – Katherine Melançon


This still life of food waste turned playground is a work adapted from several collaborations with the experimental music group Mue, through which we wanted to raise awareness of food waste. The work seeks to magnify leftover, forgotten, ugly, overly bitter or smelly food to give it a second life – even if ideally it would have been consumed. Food waste has a major impact on the current state of the environment and biodiversity, and even if we are aware of it, it is difficult, but not impossible, to avoid.

Conceived in the post-pandemic context, the Allo Ada project enabled 8 artists and a collective to integrate and adapt their work on the XR Mozilla Hubs mixed reality web platform, with the help of LouisTB, Anna Eyler and Jules Galbraith. This platform enables Ada X to develop educational activities that bring the universe of each artist to a public and a formula adapted to its context.

Allo Ada is a virtual space for discovering, animating and meeting artists created by Ada X on the XR Mozilla Hub Web reality platform, with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts.
