Futurefarmers - Out of Place, in Place
|Author:||Lucia Sanromán et al|
Futurefarmers propose a collective, playful, inquiry-based approach to art-making that spans multiple disciplines and ways of inhabiting the world, from sailing and farming to environmental design and DIY scientific experimentation. Working in the tradition of social sculpture and participatory art, the coalition of artists, farmers, scientists and designers have called San Francisco and the Bay Area their hub since 1995.
Futurefarmers: Out of Place, in Place surveys their practice, with a focus on the creation of a new speculative fog-harvesting machine for today's Bay Area. This richly illustrated catalog includes essays by biologist Albert Colman, anthropologist Michael Taussig, curator and writer Elizabeth Thomas, novelist and critic Cooley Windsor and exhibition curator Lucia Sanroman.
