“Kudzu” looks at the blanketing and burying effect that suburbia can have on social change. Inspired by the kudzu that blankets parts of Richmond, VA and other areas of the south east. Kudzu, native to Japan, was introduced at a world’s fair in Philly and was used in order to keep crops from eroding. Farmers were paid and encouraged to plant it, until it began to take over. Today Kudzu is still a large problem, growing up to a 1 ft. a day, covering everything in it’s path.
