â€œCrop-Croppingâ€ plays with the words â€˜cropâ€™ and â€˜croppingâ€™ used in agricultural and in digital art practices. The project juxtaposes both Mayan and electronic codes, and furthermore references Latin American literature (â€œMen of Maizeâ€) to address the murky debates between Mexico and the U.S.A. concerning GM maize seed. The workâ€™s focus becomes the latent erasure of seeds and of ecosystems, and also the processes of interpretation, juxtaposition, erosion and disappearance of national and continental narratives about maize as food, and equally as a cultural symbol. The interactive piece has a pictographic interface inspired by Maya logograms. Here you can interact with ideas about the maze about maize, all by using your fingers in small gestures: Tap - Pinch - Swipe - Zoom.
