Future Cornfield (Conference Table)

Custom table planter, bioengeered and heirloom corn varieties, seasonal affective disorder lights.

From Children of the Corn to Field of Dreams, the cornfields of the midwest have long been seen as contemplative, mystical objects. GRNASFCK proposes to grow a future cornfield in an office environment. The Future Cornfield is sourced from bio-engineered and heirloom seeds. It is opportunistic in scale, occupying office furniture and available space within the office. As it grows over a period of 120 days, lit by full-spectrum seasonal affective disorder lights, Future Cornfield provides relief from the bitter Chicago winter and makes a space for collective mediation.
