INDI PhD Candidate

Alexandra Kenefick is an INDI PhD candidate whose work challenges patriarchal paradigms in design by establishing a feminist, more-than-human approach to making-with diverse voices, perspectives, species, and praxes. Making/Meat/Matter uses such an approach to expose inequities found in contemporary animal production/consumption systems by prodding at the tangled and messy relationships humans contend with meat consumption. By recognizing the intimate subtleties, personal narratives, and situated experiences that further one’s decisions to eat or not to eat other animals as salient qualities toward mindful consumption patterns, her work explores how individual consumers can become capable of response, and agents in the collective redesigning of destructive systems and their embedded injustices.
