Title:
What is The Right Question?

Author:
Monika Dutta and Jake Harries

Description:
What is The Right Question? is an installation work comprising a large scale photographic image displayed alongside an accompanying text, intended as a provocation for viewers to consider their own position in a modern consumerist world and the possibilities in adopting other approaches. A 5 metre long black and white print was created by digitally stitching selected frames from a four and half minute video pan across a wild meadow filled with dandelions. (In the submitted image, the text has been appended so as to be readable.) The artwork can provoke viewers to consider the global impact of agriculture by presenting a challenge to common beliefs about what is or is not food; to consider sustainable systems of growth that can feed us without threat to biodiversity.
