Matthew Moore
Rotations: Single Family Residence — Hoe Cam (excerpt), 2008
Color video, running time 31:27

Moore is the last of four generations to farm his family’s land outside of Phoenix, AZ. As a farmer and an artist, he displays the realities of this transition in order to document his displacement from the land on which he was raised. For his new series entitled Lifecycles, Moore creates time-lapse video documentations of different foods grown on his family farm (kale, squash, broccoli, etc.) to archive the most important daily process of agriculture, the growth of produce. The short films show a single production cycle of each plant. The project is a part of a larger effort to create an international database, gathering footage of plants grown across the globe through time-lapse photography.
