Structures of the grain silos form the visual dominant of numerous Czech and Slovak settlements. They visually play similar role as the medieval castles played in the past. They are, therefore, an archetype of the human intervention to the landscape.
Almost every person can recollect some of his or her „own silo“ located around their hometown. Still their function and interior fittings are encircled by mystery.
Grain silos are fascinating objects for me. Sometimes I consider their surrounding as much important as the silo itself. These „ordinary landscapes” tell the story about our time by recording unspectacular details – deferred material, cars, typography, etc.
