Cultivation Cycles in a Metropolitan Area

“Cultivation Cycles in a Metropolitan Area” is based on a diagram found in a commissioned study on urban development in 20th Century Chicago describing “The Influence of Housing in the Structure of a Metropolitan Area.” Attracted to the original document’s combination of problematic ideology and utter illegibility as an infographic, we retained elements of the visual while re-imagining the textual relationships within, with urban development and fruit production standing in for dynamics of the cultivation cycle.
