Food and art themes unite in these four unique Fringe events
As always, the Melbourne Fringe Festival program incorporates a diverse range of activities and events. Taking place this year from 15th September to 2nd October, the festival offers some interesting events which combine food and arts. Here are some of the best.

Absolutely Famished by Pierre Proske

As advances in food production and genetic modification of crops solve issues of food security and demand, the question of desirability nevertheless remains. Will automatically anti-browning fruits retain their allure? Will nutrient-rich shakes replace the good old Sunday roast?

Curated by the University of Melbourne's Carlton Connect Initiative, this exhibition explores the fragile relationship between food, desire and technology and is a creative exploration of future food.
