Part of Fallen Fruit’s Let Them Eat LACMA on Sunday November 7th, 2010

LA artist Bari Ziperstein invited the public to contribute their dinner plates to 1,095: One Years Worth of Other People’s Plates—a temporary, interactive three-dimensional installation of one year’s worth of other people’s plates in the shape of a mandala – 1,095 is part swap meet, part sculpture. Plates collected via social networking were redistributed back to donators in the amount of their original donation. Ziperstein’s sculpture-in-flux provided a point of convergence where ordinary objects were temporarily transformed before returning to their everyday status. Though a fleeting sculpture, the project lives on in the homes of those who participated. 3 MEALS A DAY X 365 DAYS = 1,095 PLATES
