EYE FARM

A film by Beny Wagner (website)

2016 | English | 21 min | Digital Video | Color | Stereo | 25fps

EYE FARM explores the relationship between agriculture and perception through the parallel tools of image production and industrial agriculture. The film shows an historical arch - in which the depiction of labor and spiritual beliefs are replaced by vast, empty automated landscapes and benign images of leisure - in an attempt to reconcile the gap between the material realities of agriculture and the symbolic value it has come to represent.
