Documentary-Style Social Work Project
December 15, 2011 – April 1, 2012
This is about seeds. A Patented Life is a project documenting our 6 week personal rejection of the genetically modified seeds that compromise the food on our tables, small farms around the world, and our relationship to the land. Through genetic engineering and US patent law, Monsanto Inc., the company which brought us Agent Orange, leads the way in dominating our world’s seed supply. The purpose of this project is to activate the public to stop Monsanto’s genetic experiment on our food and livelihoods in its tracks. We are returning to real foods and inviting eaters of the world to do the same.
*To get people to stop consuming GMO products by sowing seeds of doubt around the safety and ethics of genetic engineering(GE)
*Contribute to the work of existing community movements about this human rights issue
