Who is Romie 18?
Working at Genneper Hoeve, a biodynamic farm in Eindhoven, has given designer Adelaide Lala Tam an opportunity to have close contact with farm animals and their daily routines. With this project she brings the audience closer to the identity of one of the specific cows, Romie 18. She provides a perspective for the audience to reflect on the life of a milk cow by drawing them closer to the intimate details of Romie 18’s life. The narrative style plays on the similarities and differences between cows and human beings, both of which contain life. The only difference is the cow is sacrificed and eventually appears on the dining table again.
