November Strawberry (2021)


During cold seasons in Florida, strawberry farms are heavily sprayed with warm water. Overtime, cavities start to form underground and sinkholes emerge, swallowing up parts of surrounding city life. This extravist occurrence causes ruptures in the urban surfaces that we have been taking for granted, and puts into question the reliance on the year-round strawberries. Through capturing surfaces of strawberries and the infrastructures that allow them to exist, we inquire into the consequences that arise when we get to experience summer fruits in November.
