Fallen Fruit invites the public to bring homegrown or street-picked fruit and collaborate with us in making a collective fruit jams. Working without recipes, we ask people to sit with others they do not already know and negotiate what kind of jam to make: if I have lemons and you have figs, we’d make lemon fig jam (with lavender). Each jam is a social experiment. Usually held in a gallery or museum, this event forefronts the social and public nature of Fallen Fruit’s work. I consider it the archetypal work of Fallen Fruit, innovative social forms that open to the possibility of new kinds of publics being formed. In utopian and surprising iterations, this piece has spilled out into the city streets, reframing the meaning of public, private and domestic space.
