Environmental Issues: The Lexicon of Sustainability

Overview and Links

  • See the entire series!
    Filmmakers Douglas Gayeton and Laura Howard-Gayeton have turned their pioneering method of mixing hand-written text with photo collage into KNOW YOUR FOOD, a stunning collection of short films for PBS that introduce viewers to the terms and principles that enable them to be more responsible, sustainable-minded consumers. The films mix information artworks and animation by Pier Giorgio Provenzano with live action interviews with food producers from across the country.
  • The Lexicon of Sustainability
    A multi-platform approach to sustainability that includes short films, street art, a media campaign, & more.

Artwork

The Lexicon of Sustainability illustrates the vocabulary of sustainable agriculture through "information artwork," and aims to educate, engage and activate people to pay closer attention to America's food system.
