Everyday Objects, sculpture, 2009

A suite of sculptural objects fashioned from several domestic items, such as a cutting boards, aprons, knives, spoons, tote bags and picnic tables.  All of them are equipment Fallen Fruit uses in picking fruit or our Public Fruit Jams, except each is engraved with text we have “harvested” from comments viewers have left for us on YouTube.  The cynical phrases range from “fucked in the head californians” to “dipshit liberals, always looking for a handout.”  Everyday Objects poise the cheerful domesticity of the objects against the cynicism of an anonymous public.
