Since the advent of genetic modification humanity is no longer confined to the laws of nature like we once were. We now have the ability to dramatically alter the development of living organisms with catalytic potentialities. A number of these possibilities could include beneficial developments in the areas of disease management and food production – which have the capacity to change the lives of millions. Sadly, however, the primary funding for these projects comes from avaricious corporations such as Monsanto who have little or no concern for those who would benefit the most.
Presented as a triptych this project aims to highlight the detrimental effects that Genetic modification will have on a micro and macrocosmic scale should it continue on its current path. Drawing parallels through artificial materials such as plastic and plaster these works aim to highlight the golden veneer of advancement GM products falsely proffer. The three installations aim to evoke connection to three stages of growth – the seed, the produce and the earth.
