Tomato Too Go
The Tomatoes of the Summer of 2011


For the past couple years I have been creating work collaboratively with living, dying
and dead plants. Using wheat grass and vegetables, roots and vegetables are grown in
fabricated molds and found food plastic containers. The roots of the plants become the
sculptural forms, the means of expression. Both the process of growth and decay are
displayed and documented.
In this series, I document the tomatoes that were trapped in the Jardin Biologique #9
during the summer of 2011. The images and objects are beautiful yet uncanny. They
draw attention to the theatricality of matter. They are meant to seduce and simultaneously
repulse the viewer. They speak both to forceful containment, repression and victorious
resistance and escape.
