Animal Life

Animal Life by Jose Ahedo

While every discussion of livestock production today is inevitably linked to staggering numbers and statistical figures on energy use, the environment, and the production process itself, it is also true that little attention is paid to the design and living conditions of the people who work in these productive areas and live in the surrounding regions. Between 2014 and 2016, I traveled around 100,000 miles through some of these isolated rural territories on four continents. My intention was to observe and trace the domestic life, history, and culture that shaped those landscapes, to build a framework for speculation, and identify opportunities for design to have an impact in such a crucial sector.
