The space of the expansive sky and fallow land covered in snow that will burst forth with a hybrid corn crop come spring are distinctly Midwestern.  Signs of agricultural industriousness abound in the precise GPS-guided no-till rows, the expansive cleared land with diminutive touches of forest saved by wetlands or property lines, and the giant silos punctuating the horizon though looking small and faint despite their massive concrete presence. Reading the landscape.
