These vessels belong to a body of work about subsistence farmers and climate change. They were created in response to the state of vulnerability of the world food supply as it contends with extreme weather and impacted ecosystems that harm crops and threaten livelihoods. This is a shared predicament. Not only as empathetic beings, but also as contributors to climate warming, we can no longer ignore the impact our lives have on the food supply of subsistence farming populations.
