Comprising over 7,000 individual leaves collected from beneath a tree, this temporary ‘meditative” installation was created in public view over the course of four weeks at Contemporary Art Space Osaka as part of the Robert Callender International Residency.
On the face, the installation is a simple call for visitors to take seed into the community to be planted. Yet it also asks us to reconsider the links between ourselves and the food we eat, and the role and power of a seed.
What does it mean for a cabbage to eat a hamburger? We proposed this question in the form of a physical gallery installation, planting a real live cabbage inside a real cheeseburger.
