About Futurefarmers

Futurefarmers is an interdisciplinary art collective based in San Francisco. Internationally known for creating a practice that extends across and beyond conventional artistic categories, their wide-ranging work embraces corporate design commissions, gallery exhibitions, Internet-specific projects, video game design, community seminars, direct social activism and even their own artist-in-residence program, which has enabled young artists from around the world “to unite in the collaborative environment of Futurefarmers’ studio.”

The number of collaborators in Futurefarmers varies from project-to-project. For the PCC residency, the group included Amy Franceschini, an artist and educator who founded Futurefarmers in 1995; Michael Swaine, an inventor and designer who has worked with Futurefarmers since 1997 and Stijn Schiffeleers, a specialist in film, video and interactive installations who is also co-founder of Boutiquevizique, a new media collaborative in Belgium.
