The Un-Natural Nature of Food: New Group Show on Fraction

Many of my friends tend to cringe when I start talking about my copy of How to Survive in the Wilderness and my reasoning about eating meat -- "If I can't kill it, I should not eat it". With books like The Omnivore's Dilemma or Fast Food Nation, and films like Food, Inc., it's clear this pattern of thinking is happening on a broad scale, and I am perhaps more susceptible to suggestion than I like to think.-- from the curator's statement, The Un-Natural Nature of Food


I am pleased to present my second group show with Fraction Magazine, titled The Un-Natural Nature of Food. Curating for this show and the previous Dress Show for the internet has some of the same restrictions associated with a physical location, but also allows for more interactive dialogue rarely afforded in a three-dimensional space. The curator adds another layer of meaning to the works by placing them in context with other pieces. I am appreciative to all the photographers who graciously submitted images into my hands.
