The 3d printing industry has been transformed from a handful of manufacturers producing costly machines, to hundreds of individuals creating their own machines and sharing the instructions on how to make them. The incredible accessibility to this technology has the potential to affect many aspects of our daily lives, including how we think about food. What if in your kitchen, next to your stove, you had a machine capable of printing food?

Our proposal is rooted in exposing the general population of Istanbul to Food Printing by making it mobile. By taking inspiration from food merchants in the streets of the city, we propose to construct and deploy a food cart capable of printing food. By bringing this technology to the streets, we do not limit the discussion to the general audience of a design biennial, rather we allow it to collide with a dynamic city rich in culinary history.
