Lubbock Eternal

Employing speculative architecture and botanical illustrations of herbicide resistant weeds, Lightfoot and Simpson call into question current industrial agriculture, land-use, and plant science practices on the South Plains. Through a series of conversations and subsequent artworks, Lightfoot and Simpson ask: how can we achieve an Eternal Lubbock with un-sustainable agricultural practices? What might alternative models of agricultural practice look like?
