Food for Thought Micro Views: Threats and Prospects offers a micro perspective on how one part of nature–our food–is connected to climate change. 

Using photomontage to create a surreal conversation between everyday foods and microscopic parts of themselves, Dash’s work ponders THREATS to our staple foods from: crop loss due to droughts, floods, soil loss, pests, deforestation; loss of crop nutrient value, and stresses on developing nations; the shifting ranges of many crops; the shift of seasons and implications for syncing with pollinators; and the crash of insect (bee and other) populations.
