If I was able to earn this grant, I would love to create an array of public sculptures designed for urban and rural areas. Within these sculptures, I would plant/inoculate an assortment of edible plants and/or fungi made for free, public consumption. By creating works of art that tantalize taste and sight, I hope to encourage a dialogue among the public participants about how a work of art may effect their everyday life, as well as encourage the notion of self-sustainablity. With the creation of numerous edible sculptures in various locations, I would hope that others would look upon it as something that they could do themselves; that they would be inspired to make their own art at home that can also act as a personal garden.
