Chris Jordan's got a new logo suggestion for Monsanto

Artist Chris Jordan’s newest work, Proposed New Corporate Logo For Monsanto Company, 2011 is based on a painting by Josiah Lopez. Jordan elaborates:

In light of this week’s sickening news about Monsanto’s latest act of agri-piracy here in the U.S., I have decided to release one of my new pieces that I was otherwise planning on keeping in reserve for an exhibition.

The piece depicts 200,000 heirloom agricultural plant seeds, equal to the number of farmers in India who have committed suicide since 1997, when Monsanto introduced its genetically modified cotton seeds containing terminator technology into that region.
