I use collage, drawing, text, and installation to bring new attention to the influence of agrichemical and biotech companies on our food supply. These corporations, posing as modern agricultural companies, actively conceal their past and leverage profit over public health. My need to uncover corporate disinformation and false narratives stems from health issues related to pesticides and genetically-engineered food. I combine archival research with appropriated printed and digital source materials to expose deceptive, persistent greenwashing. By mirroring seductive corporate imagery, language, and typography, I disrupt perceptions and invite viewers to critically engage with industry propaganda.
GENETICALLY COMMODIFIED PROJECT STATEMENT
Genetically Commodified is an ongoing multi-disciplinary project (drawing, installation, sound) that investigates the consequences of introducing GMOs into our food supply. Through recent political and media discussions, familiarity with serious issues affecting our industrial food chain is steadily increasing. Genetically Commodified explores these issues within an artistic framework, working across mediums to create an integrated environment where the audience can consider the influence of GMOs.
