Orchids of Canvey

Located on the Eastern marshes of Canvey Island, The Orchid Farm represents the mass delivery of a highly ornate product. Tourists and local residents visit the structure and chose from an array of products. ‘Vending machines’ act as the store worker taking orders and payments and mechanically delivering products.

Over time the factory will germinate the marshlands through the expulsion of seedlings, creating orchid gardens that punctuate the bleak Eastern landscape.
