Every World Expo has a central theme at its core. For Expo Milano 2015 the theme is: Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life. Each participant country is being asked to address the fundamental question that is so pertinent to our times:
“In the future, will it be possible to ensure sufficient, good, healthy sustainable food for all mankind?”
Initially envisioned by Cultural Engineering and produced by case design in collaboration with Ellen E. Donnelly, The Secret Life of Date Palms was created as an experiential installation for the UAE Pavilion at the Milan World Expo in 2015.
