24: Song of Songs
The 7-Year Itch

Mixed media on paper
12 x 17.25 inches

Process-based installation/live art work, orchard of Braziers Park, Braziers International Artists Workshop, Oxfordshire, 15/08/02 (start date).

By means of pigment-free pen-point pressure on fruit skin, I inscribe ripening apples throughout the orchard with the entire text of Song of Songs (erotic poetry; the only biblical text explicitly referring to apples). The orchard is rendered a living book with self-deleting text.
