Series and works such as Thirsté examined the commodification of water and the hybridization of water privatization into an economically appealing method for corporations to exploit. Nestlé, for example, often exploits water resources at the expense of impoverished and low-income communities.
Gatormaiden was created in the fall of 2012 at the University of South Florida during a beginning ceramics class and presented in USF's 37th Annual Juried Student Art Exhibition. The work is a contrived mythical beast from the swamps and brackish waters of Florida’s nature coast where mermaids, alligators, and manatee are frequently seen around Weeki Wachee.
