Pig 05049

Last November at TEDxAmsterdam, Christien Meindertsma presented the research of her book Pig05049 which tracked all the products that were made from one pig. Her inspiration was that, although the 12.2 million pigs in the Netherlands they’re never seen anywhere. This is also true for many of the products, which don’t appear to have anything to do with meat. From the different parts of the pig – skin, bones, meat, internal organs, blood, fat, and miscellaneous – a diverse range of goods are created, from beer to bullets and chewing gum to copper.
