A collaborative work in research, agriculture, material concerns and labor with Klab and Francis Whitehead
A process of research and debate addressing the question of what it means for artists to create a local food supply for the School of the Art Institute results in six raised beds and twelve varieties of lettuce. We chose to model successful structures and inserted agricultural formalism into an underutilized space: the interior courtyard of the school becomes a site of local food production.
Our material choice, recycled plastic lumber, ensures a minimum longevity of thirty years. This work leaves behind the potential for abundance.
