Designer's statement: Industrial farming is an interesting force in our society such that its general workings are widely acknowledged and accepted yet it’s social and ethical faults are consistently ignored. More than 10 billion animals are slaughtered for food every year. Around 70 percent of that number is accounted for by chickens. As the most consumed animal in the united states, every single one of these creatures is subjected to a life of suffering and torture from day one. These are some of the reasons why I have chosen the chicken farming model as the basis of inspiration for this project. The experience of poison takes every inspiration from industrial chicken farming as it is today and puts humans in their “shoes†so to speak. This project means to ask users, what kinds of choices would you make if you were able to empathize with the animals you serve at your table for dinner?
