Future Factory// Orange Corp.

The Design Museum, London

Orange Corp. is an installation for exhibition and group performance 'Future Factory' held at the at The Design Museum, London. It presents the possibilities and risks of merging agriculture and new technologies, in order to face global issues, mainly climate change and overpopulation; it also questions what can be the consequences of exploiting workers in the process.

The factory itself has been imagined as a floating platform wandering on the seas according to its needs, where orange trees are cultivated via aeroponics, in order to respond to scarcity of land, and to an orange blight which almost caused the extinction of the fruit. The workforce is sourced depending on where the platform is, creating unstable employment dynamics and avoiding country-specific regulations.
