The Architecture Alibi & Migrations Issue:
Observatories to look into outer space, but also spaceships to explore it, and space stations on the surface of other planets. Craters made by meteor impacts. Mankind migrating to Mars. Humans migrating on earth, crossing natural and manmade borders. Building towns in the craters. Building shelters on the borders. Shielding ourselves from the elements. Seeking protection in nature. Moving from a state of war towards peace. Containing our souls in our bodies. Inhabiting books. Visiting literary worlds. Visiting miniature worlds. Being a tourist in films. Encountering walls and letting them be our witnesses.
Beyond being what merely keeps us alive, food has become an excuse, a reason to be creative, a pretext to flirt, to talk to strangers, to share our most intimate stories with the ones we love. And also, one of the many ways in which we can explain who we are as individuals and as a society.
The gastronomic experience starts when you arrive at a friend’s home and get struck by the smell of poulet rôti as soon as he opens the door. It starts when you enter a restaurant in Rome and sense the air filled with an aroma of cheese, wine, and truffles. Your eyes marvel when you see a plate that looks like an abstract work of art. Gastronomic experiences are not only a matter of taste, they appeal to all our senses. We want this issue of YUCA to do so as well. By unveiling the universe of possibilities of food we wish to delight your taste, your smell, your sight, and touch, and also your mind.
We don’t pretend to be experts on the matter. We just want to explore the language of food, to know more about how it constructs meaning and maintains tradition, to invite people from different backgrounds to talk about it and see what comes out.
On the other hand there’s ROOTS, the cross-cutting theme for this issue. We chose it because, as YUCA –the root that gave its name to this magazine– it portrays our origins, where we come from. Every member of the editorial team has evoked his and her own background to bring this publication to life. Interesting enough, none of us is attached to one sole ground. Our roots have forced us to look forward, inspired us to learn about the world, to explore its landscapes, and to know its people. Our roots are the main position from which we relate to others and they are what enables us to open up to creativity and movement rather than remaining still and unchanged.<!-- Frequency: 2 issues/year
