I created this after saving my fruit bags over the last three years. It is subtle beauty, transience and a commentary on how 40% of America's landfill waste is food. The fact that Americans are silently unaware of this even though 1/3 of our waste could feed all 50 million of our hungry along with more people in other countries. Our poorest of the poor are still astonishing rich. A typical person in the bottom 5% of America's poor is wealthier than 68% of the world's inhabitants. Some of the fruit bags I collected are from India and others from America but many of the fruits come from South America where workers live in poverty conditions. These millions of migrant workers are invisible to most people but the manual labor is needed to harvest blemished free fruits and vegetables of the same size and colors American consumers have been conditioned to demand.
