FUTURE FACTORIES: ORANGE CORP.

Orange Corp. Is an installation part of the exhibition and performance 'Future Factories' held at the Design Museum of 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 the consequences of exploiting workers in the process are.

 

The factory itself has been imagined as a floating platform wandering on the seas according to its needs, where GMO oranges are cultivated via aeroponics, in order to respond to scarcity of land, and to an orange blight that 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
