The Developers' Feast is a life-size picnic table
whose metaphor is that developers are being served
up ecologically valuable land by tax-hungry local
governments. The central runner is covered in
'bleeding hearts': a derogatory name often given
to socially concerned women by politicians and
developers with whom they do not see eye-to-eye.
Stretched tight and frayed around the edges, it
represents the artist herself and all others who
take up the exhausting challenge of trying to
protect endangered ecosystems. The "china" depicts
areas either threatened by development or already
lost to clear-cutting. Please take the time to
read the menus and the captions around the edges
of the plates.
