This piece is an editorial illustration for an article regarding Artificial Salmon Farming, and the increasingly dependence on artificially produced and sustained foods, and the way technology is developing to maintain it.
I speculatively imagined a future where due to global changes, fish shortages will create a need for artificial fish containing foods/nutrients to sustain fishermen and other people dependent on sea food.
Made using Illustrator.
As my grandfather was a fisherman, I grew up often seeing a fish being flayed, and drew inspiration from those experiences. To push the concept of the artificial fish, I only used angular and geometric lines to illustrate the salmon.
I also took text from the article and used it as texture and grain of the wood cutting board.
