Site analysis of a NY based farmer.
Sneak preview of our project:
Final Writeup & Deliverable:
Our group decided to interview Farmer Morse of Windfall Farms in the Union Square Farmers Market. Initially it was the giant green bus and the abundance of green vegetables that drew us in, but the more we spoke to Morse and his staff, the more we found them to be an incredibly kind and enjoyable bunch.
We as a group had a great time learning about Morse and his farming process and decided to harness that energy into this project. We decided to go beyond creating a video presentation and assembled an interactive video experience.
The farmers’ market is so dynamic; no two visits are the same and no two people have the same experience. These unique site visits are what we attempted to recreate in our Windfall Farms Treasure Hunt. We wanted to give our AUB counterparts agency in uncovering facts about the site and also about Farmer Morse. We analyzed the site from a multitude of perspectives in order to integrate visual cues, textual analysis, video interviews, infrastructure, and public access. The treasure hunt allowed us to consolidate all of our various diagrams and pieces of media into one platform and hopefully achieved an enjoyable educational experience.
