Taste.

A Design Observer Symposium on Food and Visual Culture

 

As co-founder and CEO of SproutsIO, Jennifer Broutin Farah leads the development of new technologies that redefine our interaction with food. Drawing from her childhood experience growing fruits and vegetables in the suburbs of Detroit, Jennifer believes the spirit of the gardener extends beyond growing plants; it represents the ability to thoughtfully nurture and participate in the world around us.  

Jennifer earned an M.S. in Media Arts and Sciences from the MIT Media Lab, an M.S. in Advanced Architecture Design from Columbia University, and a BArch from the University of Miami. She has taught at Columbia University, Pratt Institute, and at the New York City College of Technology, and continues to lecture internationally. She was selected as an Innovation Fellow by Wired Magazine, a Tech Hero by Glamour Magazine, and a finalist for the Cartier Women's Initiative Awards.
