Neighborhood Infusions, 2008 – ongoing
An ongoing project by Fallen Fruit, in collaboration with Greenbar collective (greenbar.com) in which we pick the fruit we find on a certain street or locale, infuse it in vodka, and name it for the neighborhood. We’re interested in the essence of that place, to think about its unique qualities but also look at it as a template for creating more livable and individualized neighborhoods. The question Neighborhood Infusions asks is tinged with irony: can you capture the essence of a place in a bottle? The work is served off the wall by docents (rather than bartenders), who take time to interpret its implications for those interested in consuming it.
