Invasive Species & The Future of Sustainable Food

17 Sep 2015

As humanity’s voracious appetite wreaks havoc on ecosystems around the globe, we are challenging cultural norms related to the food we consume and refocusing our hunger for a good cause.

On September 10, LPK hosted Invasive Species: Envisioning the Future of Food in America, a special tasting and pop-up gallery at People’s Liberty in Cincinnati’s historic Over-the-Rhine neighborhood.

Invasive Species was inspired by a photo series developed by food stylist Michelle Gatton, Photographer Christopher Testani and LPK Creative Director Mason Adams, and instigated by Nascense, a collaborative of LPK and independent creatives. An innovative approach to consumer research and generative brand development, Nascense shifts the focus from trends research and evidence to intuition and instigation, planting a seed and pinging the universe to see what comes back.
