Crop art in real time

Crop art in time-lapse (72 hours condensed to 30 seconds) and in real time (five minutes). Now you can experience the seed-pasting adrenaline rush for yourself!

Crop art and politics and publicity

One nice thing about the politics in the crop art exhibit -- it gets the newspapers interested. Here's a slideshow on the New York Times site that features a couple political pieces of crop art.

Crop art and politics

It happens every year. Someone notices that there are political statements made at the Minnesota State Fair Crop Art exhibit/competition.

At the drop off

When I took my crop art entry to the Ag Hort Bee building I was surprised at the amount and quality of the entries this year. Really nice work. I'm excited to see everything up on the wall.

Aug. 18

That's it.

Aug. 18

Seed legend, put the picture in the frame, attached the legend, entry tag and name and address. Trying to follow the rules in the rule book. Ready to take this thing to the Fair.

Painted around the edge of the seeds so there's no white showing when the picture's in the frame. Also pasted a few more seeds here and there.

[1 hour]

Aug. 18

Timothy, amaranth, birdsfoot trefoil, red clover, white clover (almost every seed -- since I'm cleaning up little bits here and there). That's pretty-much it. Some tidying and making the seed card are left. (As always, click picture for a closer view.)
