Seeing Beyond Recycled Imagery: Visualizing New Roots
It is necessary to see through and beyond the recycled and idealized pastoral imagery often presented in mass culture in order to disturb the sanitized story embedded within its image, build a more complete picture of American food production, and give visibility to current efforts attempting to forge a more sustainable future. Via nontraditional sights that express the presence, potential of, and need for a re-imagining of agrarian spaces, such as photographs of urban farming in Detroit and Chicago's, The Plant, a vertical farm and food business incubator, it is possible to grasp the present, encourage further ecological imagination and bridge the rivalry between industry and agrarianism.
