My experience working on a hog farm compelled me to examine the ethics and morality with industrial farming and explore the distance between consumers and producers through my artwork. While mowing around these hog confinements, I have encountered rats, nearly overflowing lagoons full of waste, compost piles of dead pigs, and the unforgettable smell of these places that I could never get used to. These vivid memories drive me to analyze the relationship between large scale agriculture and other societal systems. In my work, I show the good, the bad, and the ugly sides of industrial farming.
