Unnatural Food

In our assumptions, food seems to be natural, but the stories behind the food production showed me the opposite truth.

I realise that our food is unnatural when humans start to selectively cultivate it according to our needs. The selective breeding of food means that we devote most of our environmental resources to producing popular foods, which upsets the balance of natural development.

Aim to challenge the conventions and assumptions we associate with food production and consumption through my work. I decided to explore food production in-depth and show my audience the stories behind the production of food. I aim to inform my audience about wider social issues and the environmental impact of our food choices on humans and the health of the planet.
