dc.description.abstractGOLDEN SURPLUS brings together the art of ceramics and the ideology of farming. The exhibition prompts viewers to question contemporary agri-business and reflect on the methodology of genetically modifying seed. In my artwork, I aim to express what agriculture used to be, speak about where it is today, and question where it is going because of this technology. Traditionally in the past, seed was passed down from generation to generation. Specific vegetables and fruit were grown at specific times and locations, depending on the season and environment, creating the term 'in-season.' Today, through the development and advancement of technology, and because of the exponential population growth, the American farmer is now producing enough to feed himself and many others. In the twenty-first century we can transfer genes between unrelated organisms; offering no limitations and no restraints. Farmers quickly became scientists, and, today, scientists have now become farmers.en
