In 'Snack or Food Pill?' twenty-four artists and filmmakers invite you on a travel through time. Did your travel go smoothly? Was it a blessing or a burden? Did you enjoy snacks or food pills? The selected 60 second science fictions were sent in from Cameroon, Colombia, India, Netherlands, Spain, Peru, United Kingdom and United States and were curated by Sandberg Design Department.

You have been granted the gift
to travel through time to a dystopian future
where mankind is almost extinct.

Was the gift a blessing or burden?
How does that future look like?
How do you look like?
Did your travel go smoothly
or did you run into unidentified foreign objects?

Do you want to make a change
for mankind to keep existing?
Did you enjoy snacks or food pills?

Sandberg Design Department

The Design Department is a two-year Master’s programme at Sandberg Instituut, Amsterdam (NL) that provides a collaborative environment for students to develop their projects and practices. As the design discipline is increasingly hard to define, the Design Department reserves space and time for critical reflection on how to relate and contribute to—as well as problematize—contemporary design discourse. The open structure of the curriculum allows the tutors and students to reflect on, and respond to, urgent topics and current discourses. Considering design as a practice of “making things public,” they attend to the politics inherent in design, through actively opening up, sharing, and reviewing design in progress. Modes of expression range from print work, digital interfaces, films and videos, network infrastructures, games, performances, writing, educational platforms, audio tours, and more.

The One Minutes works closely with various art education institutions internationally. For 'Snack or Food Pill?' video maker and designer Juliette Lizotte did a 5-day workshop with students Design and Ecologies of Transformation at Sandberg Instituut. Most of the works produced that week are included in the series.
