Rice as Art

Rice as Art
Christine Huang

Once a year, farmers in Inakadate, Japan, take some time off from their daily grind to create large-scale works of environmental art. To create the images, the farmers use kodaimai rice, which is purple and yellow-leafed, along with their usual tsugaru-roman (green-leafed) variety. A tradition since 1993, this year’s creation (pictured) is currently in the works and will be visible until September when the rice is harvested. The works of Inakadate’s farmers have inspired others across Japan, with images sprouting from the rice fields of Yonezawa and Nishio as well (more images can be found here).
