New Work

Work in Progress

In the Middle

A work in progress taking place during my residence at Art Farm in Marquette NE. More images and video etc coming soon. In the middle is a 28 square mile performance that takes place at “food ground zero” (in and around Marquette NE) where industrial agriculture is unbridled and local food is scarce.

Shannon Young from Maryland, wanders lost through cornfields and countryside with a shopping cart; a perfect example of hope enacted that real food might be discovered on a farm. Ed Dadey Director of Art Farm Marquette NE
