Processed Views interprets the frontier of industrial food production: the seductive and alarming intersection of nature and technology. As we move further away from the sources of our food, we head into uncharted territory replete with unintended consequences for the environment and for our health.
In our commentary on processed foods, we reference the work of Carleton Watkins (1829-1916). His sublime photographic views framed the American West as a land of endless possibilities and significantly influenced the creation of the first national parks. Watkins’ photographs were also commissioned by the corporate interests of the day; railroad, mining, lumber and milling. His work served as both documentation of and advertisement for the American West. Watkins’ images upheld the popular 19th century notion of Manifest Destiny – America’s bountiful land, inevitably and justifiably utilized by its citizens.
We built these views to examine consumption, progress and the changing landscape.
