GMO Tomato

GMO Tomato
Photo Description:
My piece focuses on man’s relationship with nature and food production. Genetically modifying organisms is often used to render food uniform and attractive to consumers, like the spherical, bright red tomatoes we see today. In my research, I found that doing so takes away its flavor. My piece reflects this idea of form over function with an architecturally-portrayed tomato. The hollow interior represents the lack of substance in today’s food.
