This portfolio invites participants to engage visually and conceptually with agricultural practices across the globe, and also to imagine how food production might look in the future as new technologies emerge to meet the demands of 8 billion people. Modern large-scale agricultural practices make possible the societies we now live in, but have serious ramifications in many spheres. Ethical concerns, food safety issues, and a growing awareness of the negative ecological impact of industrial agriculture have led many individuals, communities, and even corporations to strive for more sustainable approaches to food cultivation. These adaptations range from organic vegetable plots on the low-tech end of the spectrum, to lab-grown meat on the high end. The first hamburger made from meat artificially grown in a lab was eaten in August, 2013. Worldwide, demand for meat is higher than ever as economic growth in developing nations allows more people to eat higher up the food chain. In what ways might we further manipulate the food chain in order to continue to survive and thrive as a species? Printmakers who hail from the great corn, soybean, and print-producing state of Illinois are especially encouraged to apply.
