Part of the Earth Work Series, Intensive Rotational Grazing was made while on residency at Bread and Butter Farm in Shelburne, Vermont. For this piece we created a “printing press” that could handle the weight of a herd of cattle as they walk over. Through a collaboration between bovine, farmer and artist at Bread and Butter Farm we captured the movement of livestock from one pasture to the other. Intensive Rotational Grazing transcends a foraging technique to become a metaphor for the delicate balance we often maintain between economic prosperity and environmental conservation.
