The VisibleFood project is a website and database created to expose the hidden costs of the globalized system that produces, processes and distributes our food. The database is searchable by product, brand, company, ingredient or toxin. Associated with these things are something we call "invisibles" -effects on society, health and the environment.
The project intersects with recent public debate in Copenhagen about air pollution in the city. In collaboration with Senior Scientist Jørgen Brandt from The National Environmental Research Institute in Denmark a first prototype is developed for making an indicator that can be placed in the city and display local levels of pollution as well as pollution forecasts on individual streets. The project holds an open source script for displaying data from the Internet in a variety of forms.
