BIO 50

In 2014 I had the great pleasure to take part in BIO 50, the 24th edition of the Ljubljana Design Biennial. The photo above was taken during BIO 50’s first meeting and workshop in February, with all the participants that came for this experiment in international design collaboration lead by Belgian curator Jan Boelen. Pedro, Rita and I applied with Semi-Industrial as the sub-theme to the team working on “Knowing Food”, one of 11 themes this biennial addressed.


After many discussions and considerations, we decided to contribute to the KnowingFood group with Slovenian Milk Interfaces 1964-2014, an installation/visual essay dedicated to the preservation, packaging and presentation of milk in Slovenia during the last 50 years.

By focusing on interfaces that range from UHT and pasteurised milk packages to the Mlekomat, Slovenia’s raw milk vending machine system, this timeline shows how advances in technology and choices in representation reflect the increasingly complex design of a product, but also of the relationship between its producers and consumers.

For more facts, trivia, pictures and other findings of this research go to the BIO 50 website.


  1. Since educa-tion is extremely necessary for both chil-dren and grownups to acquire globally,
    DAPP Malawi of Humana People to People helps learning
    achievable. Even though some nations already have good schooling strategies, some
    other countries and third world countries suffer from an essential shortage of experienced and effectively quali-fied teachers.
    Some nations which are in great need for quali-fied educators.
    DAPP Malawi creates measures to pro-vide teacher training programs in those nations and many others to support expanding areas improve their education strategy.
    Teaching instructors is usually a key priority to ensure scholars are able to be taught with the proper quality and level with regard to their age range.

    Farmers Club plans can be obtained at many schools across the globe.

    DAPP Malawi helps assist all of Humana People to People
    organizations in supplying these training programs at lots of institutions.

    Africa contains 32 teacher training institutions and India hosts 22 schools that offer the program.
    Malawi supplys one institution with 2 higher education stage projects when Humana People to
    People continue to aid other developing nations with their hunt for higher education. All of these institutions and more
    are held by donations and aid from DAPP Malawi.
    Whilst third world countries might have educators within their sessions, they are not always fully-trained and capable to
    provide their students with all the materials that they really need to find out.
    With simple learning understanding to mathematical capabilities and physical knowledge, teacher training projects will supply each teacher
    helpful facts that they can fix in to the school. Specialized, excited and prideful are simply a few methods to
    express the educators taking advantage of those exceptional instructing projects.

  2. First off I would like to say great blog!

    writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.

    minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips?
