The Futurefarmers

Wandering might be what Futurefarmers do best; sure, on land and at sea, but also through anecdotes of history, or lines of inquiry that trespass disciplines, or into the materiality and means of production of everyday things. This kind of wandering, a bit more directed than flanerie, a bit more open than academic research, has led us from grain fields to nuclear test sites to the brick pathways of Harvard; from orchards to stock exchanges to the Great Refractor; from studios to picnics to libraries and factories.

We use various media to destabilize logics of “certainty”. We often start with pre-existing forms or systems; food policies, public transportation systems, rural farming rituals, etc. We see these as “ready-mades” that we carefully deconstruct as a means to visualize and understand their intrinsic logics. Through this disassembly new narratives emerge whereby reconfigurations of the principles that once dominated these systems offer new agencies.

We provide playful entry points and tools for participants to gain insight into deeper fields of inquiry- not only to imagine, but also to participate in and initiate change in the places we live.
