Pei-Ying Lin is an artist and designer from Taiwan whose project 'Virophilia' explores the human-virus encounter in a cultural context by utilising a variety of bio-art events, performances and materials to encourage discourse and understanding of this phenomenon. This stage of the project leads us to Virophilia: The 2070 revised edition of the Postnatural Cookbook.
An explanation of the cookbook is best left to the artist and publisher:
'Since 2055, viruses have become an important part of our everyday food culture. Those born before 2015 may still remember the fear of the natural order that coronavirus has brought us, but now we know such fear is also irresistibly tasty. Viruses that were once exclusive to research and medical purposes are now constitutive to our natural habitat, and the care we can bring to ourselves.
This is the first cookbook for viruses of its kind, with recipes people could have already enjoyed many decades ago. It is an illustrated guide that showcases how the everchanging ingredients keep on sparking our taste.'
