"imagine fruit as a lens through which to see the world"
Fallen Fruit began as a public project by a Los Angeles based art collective. Their goal? To show people that food is all around them by mapping the abundance of fruit growing in public places throughout their city. Since their first map in 2004, people around the world have shared their discoveries by mapping the “fallen fruit” in their communities. This “Fallen Fruit” movement allows people to re-discover their own backyards … turning urban foraging … into a treasure hunt.
