Friday and Saturday:
14:00-17:00 Panckake Robot (@Saulės Blynai)
17:00-19:00 Nootropic Lab
19:00-20:00 Aphrodisiac workshop

The “3022 Food Lab” represents a speculative exploration into the future of nutrition, employing nootropic and adaptogenic substances to influence both psychological and physical states. This pop-up café embodies an experimental approach to diet, offering a glimpse into the potential evolution of food consumption in smart city environments. The café provides three main product categories: nootropic beverages. robotically prepared pancakes, and experimental aphrodisiacs, each designed to push the boundaries of conventional culinary experiences. By situating this culinary experiment within the context of Yaga’s utopian framework, the “3022 Food Lab” advocates for a future where food is not merely sustenance but a medium for enhancing human potential and fostering community. It echoes Constant Nieuwenhuys’ vision of homo ludens, the playful human, as participants engage in the creative and experimental process of food preparation and consumption. This activity thus becomes a site of resistance against the homogenizing forces of global food industries, proposing instead a localized, participatory, and adaptive approach to nutrition.
