Tempest in a Glass is an installation that continues Canadian artist, Tracy Susheski's artistic investigations into agricultural politics, social issues, and health concerns surrounding a "bio-engineered" food supply The viewer's examination and discovery 9of this installation references evident, yet unanswered questions about milk produced with synthetics, chemicals, antibiotics and other additives. Additives serve the corporate milk producer's interest of an increased yield at a lower cost, but who else's interests are considered? Tempest in a Glass is based loosely on a photo shoot Susheski completed at the Banff Centre's "Big Rock Candy Mountain" residency. According to th e artist, it was there where she absorbed herself in producing a body of work that "simultaneously represented the sugarcoated rhetoric and the subsequent decay of our health and environment promoted by the bio-agiculture and the bio-chemichal industries."
