Soul Kitchen, Future Farmers
Amy Franceschini is an artist and one of the founders of Future Farmers, an collective of artists, designers, architects, and thinkers who share an interest in places and how we live in them today. Future Farmers projects come in many shapes and sizes from museum exhibitions, site specific installations, community projects, books, videos, you name it. Running through all this work is an interest in things like land use, agriculture, food traditions, pollution and development and how all these things impact communities.
This week I speak with Amy Franceschini about Future Farmers, the groups origins and some of their projects, including one involving Robert Oppenheimer and a nail made out of meteorites.
