Using mannequin hands, grain and glue I created an installation that looks at world hunger and consumerism. At the time of this installation there was an extreme hunger crisis in Cameroon reported. While here in the United States, it was reported that exorbitant amounts of food was being thrown out every single day. This work looks at that disparity and brings a symbol of consumerism (the mannequin) and actual food grains together. As an artist I am keenly aware that my work might not solve the crisis or resolve this disparity. Yet, perhaps it provides a new ways of looking at the problem.
