    A short music video that is a parody of "Unforgettable" by Nat King Cole. This short video strings together a series of photos (from the creative-commons) to summarise humanity's impacts on the eco-system. With a few jokes, we try not to be too morbid, but we do cover many of the planet's most serious problems, from deforestation, pollution, and intensive agriculture through to war, nuclear weapons and over-consumption.

      Shown during a solo exhibition in the visual arts center 38 CC in Delft, the Netherlands, in Summer 2013, and at the FRAC Bretagne, France in 2014, this film was inspired by a stay as artist-in-residence on the island of Belle-Ile, France in 2011, as a part of the project Centre du Monde, of Erwan Maheo. One cubic meter of discarded consumer goods was thrown into a hammock, which eventually collapses. Is there a cause and effect between between contemplation and over-consumption?

        A trailer for the upcoming book "Photo Omnivore - One Nation Undervalued" by Cat Gwynn. Everywhere I go I carry my camera, always hungry to take in the remnants of languished materialism. I see distraction, limitations and stagnation: public marks of lack, excess, waste and disregard. Like an archeologist I gather perceptible evidence of our communal gratifications and aversions. I never filter what I photograph; I recognize that sometimes what initially meant nothing ends up meaning more than I could ever imagine. – Cat Gwynn

              Graduation Project, Arab International University, faculty of Fine Arts, Visual Communication department 2011. Three promo videos, a part of promo campaign that includes posters, flayers and brochure What is project Ad.dicted? A docu-series that sheds light on the distorted polished world of advertising, and on how commercials manufacture demands by seducing, scaring and misleading us into buying products we don't need by showing us exactly what they want us to see. This creates a serious problem that is over-consumption which leads to social, economic, environment and health related problems. Each episode will focus on a line of products, explaining how the image was designed to deceive the viewer. It will show the consequences of over-consuming the very same product in an attempt to raise awareness to the hidden facts. And hopefully it will make you rethink your consuming habits.

                  Story and Photos by: Hailey Tucker "The conglomerated wad of barbecued chicken bits, watermelon chunks and corn kernels rolling around in 3-year-old Abby McLean's mouth does not stop her from asking for more as soon the last piece of food from her dinner plate has been added to the growing mass inside her mouth." Klipsun Magazine uncovers the truths about Prader-Willi Syndrome and how those born with this condition face the possibility of death from over-consumption.

                    We spend too much on food we don't need, then we spend even more to lose weight.
