Engineered Food Series

The still life works in this series look at the points of contact between human technology and the natural world. Humans can't exist without food, and many of our first inventions came about to fulfill this need. Through the millennia human ingenuity has introduced fire to cook food, fields to grow it and selective breeding to make wild plant and animal strains better adapted to human wants. Recent developments in genetics now open the door to the creation of trans-genic plants and animals. Reactions to these and other technological advances have ranged from enthrallment to extreme dis-ease, with some reactions turning violent. The Breakfast Cereal Manifesto works look at one such person's reactions: those of the Unabomber.
