Compounded Consumption

Compounded Consumption is a modular installation piece representing the six dominant livestock industries in the United States. Through deep engagement with statistics, I’ve analyzed a number of components: lifespan, ecological impacts, byproducts, yield of byproducts per unit before slaughter, yield per carcass. My work exists to be didactic and challenge viewers to consider how what they eat has greater implications aside from filling their stomachs.

Invasive Footprint

Invasive Footprint looks into the presence of non-indigenous plant life within six of the places I’ve inhabited, ranging from North Carolina to Italy.

The Trinity

The Trinity utilizes fabrication processes and analog drawing to visualize the importance of water resources.

Project "Dreamwork"

Project “Dreamwork” employed the use of found objects to prototype an intervention of Smithfield Foods Hog Production facilities in North Carolina.

Origin

Origin was born out of phenomenological theory, specifically addressing the search for one’s self when mirror is present. I disguised 400 mirrored tiles amongst the mosaic floor to then project footage of water onto their installed section. The mirror reflects the video onto the surrounding space, leading the viewer to search for the cause. In doing so, they are looking for themselves within the water, which mythologically signifies the origin of life.

What Would You Take?

What Would You Take? is a multifaceted piece utilizing fabrication software to question the importance of inanimate objects in the midst of potential evacuation. With the increasing frequency and severity of tropical storms, flooding in the coastal Carolinas has become more prevalent. Leaving my family to question what to bring if ever forced out of our home during a natural disaster.

Project "Dreamwork"

Project “Dreamwork” employed the use of found objects to prototype an intervention of Smithfield Foods Hog Production facilities in North Carolina.

Unconscious Consumption

Unconscious Consumption was an intimate ephemeral project exposing the use of hog byproducts in processed foods. Specifically, proteins extracted from animal hairs to make bread softer.

The Trinity

The Trinity utilizes fabrication processes and analog drawing to visualize the importance of water resources.

Endless Fields

Endless Fields implements illusionistic technique to acknowledge the quantity of food resources put back into other agricultural industries, specifically the livestock sector.

Compact

Compact predicts the future of industrialized farming if alternative, sustainable practices are not implemented.
