After cutting the tops off over 800 strawberries, I placed them onto the matrices of two etching plates. Though the strawberries were meant to be a temporary source of nourishment, my interest was in subverting that function to make a sculpture. As the strawberries sat on the plates they etched an impression, thus activating the matrices.
