Matias Viegener and David Burns, along with Austin Young, lead the Fallen Fruit movement to harvest and eat public fruit in Los Angeles and cities around the world.
Fallen Fruit mission statement:
Using fruit as our lens, Fallen Fruit investigates urban space, ideas of neighborhood and new forms of located citizenship and community. From protests to proposals for new urban green spaces, we aim to reconfigure the relation between those who have resources and those who do not, to examine the nature of & in the city, and to investigate new, shared forms of land use and property. Fallen Fruit is an art collaboration that began with creating maps of public fruit: the fruit trees growing on or over public property in Los Angeles.
