Corn Crib Volga

Corncribs dot the fields along the roadways in South Dakota and remain as a skeletal remnant of an agrarian past that used the wind to dry the harvest. Technology now allows farmers to dry the corn at a much larger scale, so the corncribs stand as vestigial sentinels of the past. I reinvigorated these structures to become both spectacle and landmark, and to allow the installations to react to the ever-changing weather conditions in the region. This crib has been cloaked in a skin of mylar strips that react to the subtlest of breezes and reflects a dynamic sky.
