Artist makes food preservation hot

  • Artist Jihyun Ryou has transformed working knowledge from farmers and previous
    generations into a new art exhibit that tackles the refrigerator head-on. The art installation shows individuals how they can use industry tricks in their own homes to preserve carrots, garlic, peppers, courgettes, and onions without the use of a fridge.

  • With the drive to reduce domestic energy use, preserving fruit and vegetables outside of the fridge could lead to smaller appliances and more sustainable energy consumption. It is possible that these D.I.Y. preservation techniques would be particularly attractive to those who grow their own vegetables at home.
  • Promotion of alternative home storage could reduce the need for large fridges in the long term, but could also reduce food waste now. Government may wish to work with industry (e.g. supermarkets and food production companies, or utility companies in the longer term) to increase alternative storage.
