Uni-Farm: Farm Shops Vol. 1 went to NewBrunswick for O.k. Quoi?!

I owe many thanks to all the people who worked hard to bring me out to Sackville N.B. for O.K. Quoi?! I had an amazing time and felt like all of this-finally had some worth outside of Calgary. Rita McKeough and Peter Flemming for curating me into the festival,  Garret Baumgartner for his tireless efforts in helping me document leading up-to the event, the Audio/Visual Services department of ACAD, Paul Henderson at Struts Gallery, Adam Tindale for the help with audio back in my undergrad, Matt and Lucy for putting me up, and of course my dear Pamella for the devotion and support.

Last night at A/P Gallery.

Last night was quite reaffirming for me to see the outcome and reception of my work Uni-Farm: Boardroom Forefathers at the Alberta Printmaker's Society. I met some amazing people and I know this peoject will go far. To those of you who could not make it to the first performance for the opening, you still have time. I am doing a second performance at the Society on July 17th. People may start gathering at 6:30pm like last evening but the performance will start at 7:00pm. also if you would simply like to take in the installation you may do so at any time until the end of July. If you would like to become a shareholder of the uni-farm bring $2.00 with you to the opening on the 17th and you recieve a signed print momento of the occasion for your collections, this will also get you on the mailing list.

Uni-Farm: Gardener Pro 2.
August - September 2008
Motivated by a distain towards industrial un-sustainability and consumer irresponsibility, My ongoing project Uni-Farm attempts to disarm self-serving incoherent corporate rhetoric. Over the course of time and crisis the Uni-Farm came to own all of the means of food production in North America, forcing farmers under their employment. Unsatisfied with its current market position, The Uni-Farm has expanded its sphere of influence far beyond the farming systems developed in Uni-Farm Labs. Based on its Opremium seed-printing system, The Uni-Farm presents Uni-Farm Gardener Pro, a domestic design software package making gardening easier for you and your family.

You can see images of the work in this show here.


Uni-Farm: About

The Uni-Farm is an ongoing project and a guiding aesthetic force to disarm a sort of government/corporate rhetoric that exists in our collective consciousness. As a fictional corporate entity the Uni-Farm can absorb rhetorical theories and subsequent artifacts under its general umbrella of incoherence. In doing so I can turn these elements into modes of criticism.

We exist in a confusing environment where we are easily persuaded to squander our freedoms for the fleeting conveniences and safety of urban bliss. This is accomplished through various scenarios which include green-washing, radical free market models, and shareholder irresponsibility.

Compounded by crisis capitalism and a contrived fear of destabilized food supplies, a generational estrangement from the family farm allowed the Uni-Farm to blackmail and monopolize the food industry apart from a few rogue activists.

This web log will be a repository for the stories and images of this dark hypothetical human condition called the Uni-Farm.

The Uni-Farm has no relation to products, services, businesses, people or properties currently existing/alive or dead. any Instance is purely coincidental. If you take any issue with the use of "Uni-Farm" not "unifarm" or "uni farm" or if you feel it encroaches/taints your business/family image please hug your grandchild and fuck off. Blogs are not your personal suing ground. This is a story and an art project here people.
