Red, green and black tagliatelle served for a meditation on an over-aged society
Using data in the form of the population pyramid of Dutch citizens in 1960, 2015 and 2050, a pasta graphics is created. The three colours represent the young (green), the not-so-young-anymore (red) and the old (black). In order to give a taste of the different age groups, the 1960’s pasta is topped with a meat sauce made with a prefab blend of spices by Knorr. The 2015 ‘back-to-basics’ pasta comes with Carbonara, and the pasta of the future is a mix of noodles and Wakame salad.
