Thesis M.A. California State University, Northridge 2012.
Bibliography Includes bibliographical references (pages 11-12).
Summary Using food as the medium, the three works that comprise this thesis exhibition employ minimalist structures and industrial building materials that suggest and comment on the futuristic technology used by the food industry. The sometimes disturbing visual and olfactory results of the constructions convey a sense of futility by rendering the food inedible. The artist investigates consumer culture and its impact on the food industry by researching retail and advertising practices as well as factory development, leading to an understanding of "plastic foods" and the role society plays in their development. This thesis includes photographs and a description of We Are What We Eat written by the artist.
