Growing Dilemma, 2009–2014
Growing Dilemma considers the changing value placed on agricultural land and it’s products. Through the artifacts of it’s production I am exploring how we value the inputs and outputs of the land. I grew up in Ohio spending my weekends on dairy farms and amongst rolling fields of corn. Watching the landscape change as a response to changes in agricultural practices has made me consider our culture’s expectations for food production and land use. This is reflected in the sculptural objects created in the likeness of known artifacts and those that are artificial.
