The Beef Stakes is Sarah Hallacher's unusual (but remarkably clever) take on representing data showcasing the amount of beef that was produced by various states in 2011. The size of the steak reveals the amount of beef proceeded, while the label showcases data ranges for a variety of variables.
I decided to find a data set that pleased the side of me that I?m coming to realize is an obsessed foodie. Beef Stakes is a data representation of the amount of beef produced in 2011. My project is scaled down to include the top 4 beef-producing states, though through continuing exploration of data surrounding beef, I would love to expand my project to discuss beef imports/exports between the U.S. and the rest of the world. I?m also fascinated in the amount of waste involved in beef production; the oil used to transport, the methane produced by corn-fed cows, the actual amount of meat we consume vs. produce, etc.
Each piece of meat is made from modeling clay, and the trays were created by joining existing styrofoam packaging.
