Potato Shelves

Potato Shelves
For this project, I wanted to highlight the dual relationship between what is both food and plant. When we bring items such as potatoes into our pantries, we define them as food and ingredients. But when our food begins to sprout, we have no choice but to recognize them as plants they are.
Interestingly, as the potato begins to sprout it is no longer edible and actually becomes a poison.

Garden Truck

The Garden Truck was inspired by Truck Farm a project in Brooklyn that planted a garden in the back of a truck and then invited others to reproduce the project. Working with the Ag departmet, ESSO, the OASIS club and the art department, we were able to plant a NMSU truck with a hoop house and a few other water saving features.
