Publication: SPUD (2009-2019) by Deirdre O’Mahony - March 2020

I am delighted to be included in SPUD, Deirdre O'Mahony's recently published book on the politics of food and 'tacit knowledge of farming'. I thoroughly enjoyed contributing to this collaborative project while on my residency at the Florence Trust and beyond.

'Lifeline' is one of my contribution to SPUD. It was made with a drain inspection camera and a few ideas in mind: the rhizomatic and secretive nature of the potato, its subterranean networks and its apparent likeness to human reproductive organs. Lifeline was first shown at The Florence Trust in London and then at Taroudant University, Morocco. See in Film section of this website.
