Strawberry Fields
Strawberry Fields

After cutting the tops off over 800 strawberries I proceeded to align them into columns and rows on the matrices of two plates. Though the strawberries were intended to be a temporary source of nourishment, my interest was in subverting that function to make a sculpture, while allowing the acid from the strawberries to etch an impression into the plates.
