Gastro is a fine dining, interactive installation and short film that speculates on a post-climate-change world in the year 2100. In this very possible future, restaurants do not exist anymore because farmers do not exist, therefore food cannot grow and cattle die often. However, a few restaurateurs and chefs decide to open a restaurant to let visitors experience food from the past. These entrepreneurs create smart machines with the newest technologies that recreate old gastronomic experiences while also providing stories from farmers' struggles growing foods. This paper describes the process of creating and experiencing Gastro.
