Icebox Plums (CAFÉ, POET Night) , 2009

Ice Block, 40 Plums, Hand-written Note, 4h 0m


Inspired by the William Carlos Williams poem, “This is Just to Say,” this sculpture tempted visitors to CAFÉ to steal a plum and eat it.

CAFÉ was a 6-month installation at the Phillips Collection. www.thisisnotthatcafe.com. CAFÉ occupied the same space as the museum's cafe but was transformed by interventions by the members of dBfoundation. I created the FOOD elements for the project.
