Lisa Fingleton is an artist, filmmaker, writer and grower who was inspired by a BLT sandwich to illustrate the journey of one sandwich and all its ingredients, uncovering some surprising discoveries along the way.
Lisa uses drawing as a tool to understand the world around her and to explore solutions for big challenges such as climate change and biodiversity loss. Her work invites us to imagine the possibilities and potential for the world we want to see. The Sandwich Story cleverly illustrates the impact mass food production has on our environment and makes us think about the humble sandwich and its journey with every bite.
Over the last year, the Lisa Fingleton worked closely with farmers from the Dingle Penninsula through drawing and film to creatively explore climate change and biodiversity loss. This collaborative film was co-created with the farm families so they could tell their stories and experiences. They share their connections to the land and the types of farming they are engaged in. They reflect on their learning from this project, their concerns about climate change and their ideas for the future.
