Milk Village (2012)

m/m photo (silver gelatin)-based collage, 30" x 40" x 10", 2012

In the Spring of 2012, I was invited to participate in an exhibit at the Art Center in Corvallis that would focus on the work of Dr. Angelique White, a professor at Oregon State University.  Her work researches the effects of global warming on plankton.

As plankton is a primary food source in the food chain in our oceans, I chose to research and prepare a photo-based installation based on milk, as it is a primary nutrient in the food chain for humans.  "Milk Village" reveals that the health of both food chains are, by necessity, related.
