Aug. 7: 'CONSUMED' ART INSTALLATION

Visiting New York City photographer Jodie Taylor will present a photo installation called “Consumed” at Better Farm in Redwood from 5-7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 7.

Consumed is a visual documentary project of waste in America.

Consumption is synonymous with western culture; desires are sold as needs and the convenience of new is irresistible. The average American produces 4.4 pounds of trash every single day, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. The global average is almost half of this. For many people, thinking about the impacts of their own consumption may not be a priority. However what we consume—and leave behind—affects every being on the planet. Most often, overconsumption impacts the most vulnerable first.

Taylor’s photographs are a mix of waste-landscapes and abstractions. Through these images, the artist intends to make people feel and reflect upon their own consumption and consider what actions can be taken to reduce the problem.

Taylor is visiting Better Farm during the month of August as part of the betterArts Residency Program.

In addition to her Consumed installation, Taylor will spend the month of August compiling documentary footage of Better Farm, as well as working on additional projects. She will have another show of that work in late August.
