(F)utility Kitchen is a commentary on the current trend of DIY and urban farming. Artist Leslie Mutchler created the project as a way to cultivate edible vegetation in a confined space. The gravity-drip irrigation system is built from hardware pieces, IKEA furniture, irrigation supplies, and grow lights. Seeds are suspended at canning jars that contain recycled paper bits and empty hand-made bowls.
