Visualizing Foodways:
Art+Food Relational Approaches

Course Description:

This course focused on critical artistic approaches to food and agriculture from a relational, personal perspective. Over the fall semester, students developed their own research/research-creation projects as well as a collaborative garden installation.
Drawing on theory from the environmental humanities, critical plant studies, feminist perspectives, science-fictional ecologies and biological arts, we examined personal and physical relationships with the world through the food that we eat. Students engaged with these ideas through reading, making (studio, kitchen, garden), site visits and interdisciplinary, research-creation approaches and examples (theory, art, fiction, etc.) with a particular focus on edible plants, and plants in agricultureSyllabus (link)

Blackflash Article: “A Field Gide to Monster Plants”, written including this series of plant-based anthotype images using some commonly cultivated vegetables including; spinach, beets, cabbage, and onion.  Images are still from  from films of the 1950’s and 60’s featuring ‘monster plants’.


Welcome Plants

2019 -
Textile works, wool and plant fibres on cotton cloth. These ‘welcome mat’ handmade hooked rugs depicting common wild plants, particularly those often viewed in conflicted ways by humans. 


A Breathing Room

A Breathing Room is a living installation, housing the correct number of plants (Approx 300) necessary for one person to breathe symbiotically with plant life. The architectural component of A Breathing Room was designed in collaboration with Calgary-based architect Matt Knapik in 2015

Movement Compositions

The cyanotype prints that comprise Movement Compositions are presented as four different maps, each a specific collection of ten figures of plant movement from The 1886 book The Power of Movement in Plants by Charles Darwin. The figures are recontextualized within a community of plants as one might imagine them together in a garden or in the wild:
Movement Composition for Ten Flowers; Movement Composition for a Vegetable Garden; Movement Composition for a Forest; and Movement Composition for Ten Cabbages

Rewriting the Wild

this projectexists as objects and events- reading groups or book clubs. The work evisits well known novels that feature ‘man-vs-nature’ conflict narratives, editing the gender of the protagonists. To date this project includes The Old Man and the Sea (The Old Woman and the Sea), and The Call of the Wild, with two more in progress. The Call of the Wild Was printed and sent out to 25 participants for review, to gather responses to the project and the new story. With designer Tetyana Herych (of Furrrawn Press)  the beeks are being designed as a series, starting with The Old Woman and the Sea.
 This artistic experiment is concerned with generating discussion and debate; will this slight but important shift change the story’s human-nature narrative in interesting ways? Will it generate new themes, metaphors, and meanings?


The Creative Food Research Collaboratory

The Creative Food Research Collaboratory germinates collaborations at the intersection of art and food studies, exploring how the arts can imagine—and therefore help to achieve—food security, food sovereignty, and food justice in Canada.  
Co-initiated in 2022 by Dr. Amanda White and Dr. Zoë Heyn-Jones with Research Associates Anahí González and Katie Lawson, we are currently based at the Center for Sustainable Curating at Western University (London, Canada). Foregrounding collaboration as methodology, we seeks to cultivate networks and structures that will allow collaborative artistic practices and knowledge mobilization strategies around food issues to take root and flourish.
Our work includes academic research, public events, teaching and workshops, as well as fundraising for community food initiatives.


Our work is supported in part by funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.

Ecologies in Practice: Environmentally Engaged arts in Canada

Co-edited with Elysia French 
Forthcoming in 2024 from Wilfrid Laurier University Press


What is the responsibility, or the task of the arts as we face environmental crisis?

Ecologies in Practice is an edited collection of dynamic and multi-formatted contributions exploring the ways in which cultural production informs perceptions, communications, and knowledge of environmental distress in a Canadian context, pointing to the significance of the Arts in the creation and sharing of crucial counter narratives and alternative possibilities. Ecologies in Practice identifies the arts as an important mode of inquiry for reimagining, and for public engagement and understanding of pressing environmental and social concerns, while acknowledging the ways in which it contributes important work to the growing interdisciplinary field of Environmental Humanities.

Bringing together artistic perspectives from a range of lenses and voices,including; artists, writers, scholars, activists, curators, theorists, and makers, Ecologies in Practice offers important tools for artists, scholars, students, and research-creators invested in arts and the environment. Contributors present artistic methods as alternative sites of understanding that contribute significant and affective work to environmental scholarship, while thinking outside of the disciplinary borders and confines of the artworld. Ecologies in Practice aims to initiate vital conversations among practitioners, and together with readers, consider what environmentally engaged arts lend differently to these conversations.

Hungry Stories

Hungry Stories is a reserch team including myself, Dian Day, Elaine Power, Jennifer Brady and Jennifer Black, aiming to tell new stories that move the narrative around food insecurity from food charity to food justice.
Visit our research website:

Stuffing the bus is a middle grade graphic novel about food security and its systemic roots, written as an engaging story of two friends who love cats, comics, and snacks, and their journey in learning about this complicated topic.  By author Dian Day and myself.

“When Mila’s best friend Kit gobbled three bananas in a row, she thought rude was just plain rude. But gradually Mila begins to understand that rude can also be hungry.”



Assembling Recipes for Sustainability 

Mail art project with the Centre For Sustainable Curating 
Dowload or view digital package HERE

In the 1960’s, well before the global network of the internet, Fluxus artist Robert Filliou famously coined the term “The Eternal Network” to describe a global network of artists exchanging works, ideas  and objects through the mail, or what came to be known as an artistic genre of mail art. “Eternal” in this case refers to both the decentralized nature of the network, and importantly, to the notion that art itself is eternal: without end or beginning. Today, in the context of environmental concerns and ecological thinking, the idea of something ‘eternal’ evokes the concept of sustainability. With a nod to this art historical precedent, we have initiated this mail exchange to explore this method as a framework for collaboration, to imagine different ways of convening and to share ideas around sustainability in the arts.

We were inspired by mail art tactics in which all are welcome to contribute and the assembled collection is distributed to all participants. Through an international open call, we invited artists, writers, activists, scholars, organizers, visionaries, and revolutionaries to contribute to a collective project through the mail as a form of ‘slow scholarship.’ Participants were invited to contribute a ‘recipe’ for sustainability—with ‘recipe’ to be interpreted as literally or as creatively as desired. These recipes were submitted on index cards and the collection of cards is assembled in a recipe box set.

We hope that through this collection, we will inspire each other with ideas, DIY solutions, creative or speculative imaginings, practical tips, inherited strategies, poetic responses and plans for sustaining our work.

Assembling Recipes for Sustainability was developed by Amanda White, Zoë Heyn-Jones and Kirsty Robertson as part of a larger visioning exercise at the Centre for Sustainable Curating. It was conceived in consultation with artist and mail art practitioner-scholar Lois Klassen and realized with help from Ashley Snook, Katie Lawson, Anahi Gonzales and all of the 50 contributors herein.


Rooted in the Region, 2022

Rooted in the Region, Agriculture and the Arts in Southwestern Ontario
Sunday 18 September 2022, 2-5pm
Blyth Festival Theatre’s Harvest Stage

Rooted in the Region: Agriculture and the Arts in Southwestern Ontario, a celebration of art and agriculture highlighting Indigenous, settler and migrant worker voices, combines conversations among farmers and artists with a meal and live music, taking place at the Blyth Festival Theatre’s fully accessible outdoor Harvest Stage. The Blyth Festival, located in a small farming community between Lake Huron and London, Ontario, has great historical relevance to the arts and agriculture, as the site of the germinal community-based theatre production “The Farm Show,” which celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2022.

Rooted in the Region
began with appetizers sourced from local seasonal ingredients, catered by Chef Charles Catchpole (Anishnaabe, Couchiching First Nation) of Charger Foods and Gitigaanes microfarm. We highlight the importance of corn—in Southwestern Ontario and across the hemisphere—with a corn roast by London-based artist and gardener Ron Benner whose long-standing interdisciplinary art practice focuses on the politics of food cultures and foodways across the Americas. While eating, we enjoyed live music by the Farms Music Band Association from Leamington, ON, a band formed by temporary farm workers and community members who blend their musical talents to play and share their Latin music and culture. Throughout the event, there were presentations by artists including Anahí González, Laura Rojas and Camila Salcedo, and products available for purchase from local farms and food initiatives, including Café Justicia, Meeting Place Organic Farm, Firmly Rooted Organic Farm, and more.

Curated by Amanda White and Zoë Heyn-Jones, print designs by Laura Rojas and Camila Salcedo, photos by Anahí González. Rooted in the Region was an initiative of the Creative Food Research Collaboratory, based at the Centre for Sustainable Curating in the Department of Visual Arts at Western University.


Life in the Soil

March 7-9, 2017

Life in the Soil was a 3-day interdisciplinary event, presented by The Deep Earth Treatment Centre (DETC) Amanda White and Alana Bartol in collaboration with Incubator Lab at the University of Windaor. The event aimed to encourage public engagement and cross-disciplinary dialogue towards deepening our relationship with and understanding of the complexity of living soil and its importance to all life on earth.
This gathering and workshop involved presentations and activities connecting participants to the liveness of soil; highlighting various perspectives, and exploring the ethics of inter-species collaborations.

BioCurious at the AGW

Art Gallery of Windsor, March 14 - Oct 1, 2023

BioCurious brings together works by eighteen artists whose works explore living materials as their subject matter, and in some cases, their artistic medium. Curated in the context of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and impacts of climate change, the exhibition asks pressing questions about how we have impacted the world we inhabit and how this changing world, marred by our draining of its resources, has shaped our existence. How do we create definitions of culture that include biological culture? In what ways are bodies and objects co-created with nature, during the cycle of life? How can art help us understand how the human body is permeable to, and comprised of, other life forms, and inherently connected to – not detached from – the land? How can contemporary art help us understand the genre of “landscape” more expansively? How might art depict  our biological futures? What changes must happen now to heal the land, our bodies, and the places we call home?

Sitting at the intersection of art and science, the works in this exhibition focus on humanity’s relationship to the elements—water, plant life, and the air that we breathe—and how this relationship has morphed through trade and resource extraction. The selected artists, who identify as Canadian and/or Indigenous, intertwine scientific and cultural knowledge to propose different ways of understanding living bodies and the land.

CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS: Assembling Recipes for Sustainability


Calling all artists, writers, activists, scholars, organizers, visionaries, and revolutionaries: we invite you to contribute to a collective recipe box project through the mail. Let us inspire each other with our ideas, DIY solutions, creative or speculative imaginings, practical tips, inherited strategies, poetic responses and plans for sustaining our work in (the) art world(s).

Participants are invited to contribute a ‘recipe’ for sustainability – with ‘recipe’ to be interpreted as literally or as creatively as desired. These recipes will be submitted on an index card and the collection of cards will be assembled in a recipe box.

There is no cost to participate, and all participants will be provided with a self-addressed stamped envelope and a card to submit their recipe. In exchange for contribution, participants will receive a copy of the entire collection.

This collective mail art project is curated by the Centre for Sustainable Curating’s inaugural postdoctoral fellows, Drs. Amanda White and Zoë Heyn-Jones. “Assembling Recipes for Sustainability” is a component of “Imagining The Centre For Sustainable Curating,” the CSC’s year-long visioning exercise to imagine, collaborate, and discuss the ways we can take seriously the goal of the Centre to be sustainable in all ways: that is, sustainable in teaching about best ecological practices for exhibition making, sustainable in how we might engage with the world around us, and sustainable in the outcomes built through our efforts. “Imagining The Centre For Sustainable Curating” is supported in part by funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council.

Do Roses Dream of Freedom?

 (link to text pdf): Do Roses Dream of Freedom?
An essay to accompany Waard Ward’s floristry project, as part of the exhibition Public Space, Visual Arts Centre of Clarington, 2021. PDF available on The VAC website in English and Arabic. Translation by Talal Baranbo,

“Waard Ward is: Abd Al-Mounim, Hanen Nanaa, Petrina Ng, Laura Ritacca, and Patricia Ritacca. Waard Ward is a collaborative, social practice project that invites newcomers to train as florists and imagine social-entrepreneurial futures.  Collectively led by Syrian florist Abd Al-Mounim, community organizer Hanen Nanaa, educator Laurie Ritacca, curator/educator Patricia Ritacca, and artist Petrina Ng, Waard Ward collaborates in floral arrangement, decolonial research, and newcomer community building. Waard Ward's name proposes the idea of a diasporic flower district; "waard" is a romanization of the Arabic word for flower.”
