Digital Farm Collective

Matthew Moore

As a fourth generation farmer whose land is currently being encroached upon by suburban sprawl, Moore created The Digital Farm Collective to collect and share the images of the most important daily process of agriculture—the growth of our produce. Using time-lapse photography, Moore has begun the process of filming everything he grows and inviting other farmers to do the same. The arranged short films show a single production cycle of each plant or tree. Footage and interviews of farmers all over the world will be compiled to create an international database or living library that shares footage, philosophies and agricultural data on the growth of our produce. The ultimate goal of the project is to reconnect us with our food and share the stories of the plants and the farmers and families that grow them.
