Drive Thru, 2016
> Kamloops Museum & Archives <
Drive Thru uses kitsch and nostalgia to explore the role of convenience within our local food systems. Advertisements, news segments, and promotional videos from local and online media archives juxtapose themes of transportation, suburban sprawl, industrial food production, and media consumption. Drive Thru asks us to consider our own history and relationship with an undeniable necessity: food.
