‘Public Gathering at the Monument to Sharing’ David Allen Burns and Austin Young, Fallen Fruit, 2022
“Public Gathering at the Monument to Sharing” is a digital collage made with voices recorded from our Rainbow Fruit Jam project where we ask people ‘What is Utopia?’ and also images of recontextualized anthropomorphic fruit characters originally created by the public for “Fallen Fruit Magazine” – mainly from their participatory project at the V&A Museum in London, and also various cities around the world.
The characters are gathered around the “Monument to Sharing,” the artist’s permanent installation artwork in Los Angeles’ State Historic Park. It is an installation of 32 orange trees meant to be shared with everyone. This image was created in 2021 to celebrate the launch of the Endless Orchard – Fallen Fruit’s collaborative non-contiguous public sharing orchard. Join them in creating the largest edible artwork in the world.
