Rotting fruit market

Posted on 29/10/2013 by Nick van Lanen

At the Adelaide festival of ideas in Australia, there was a fruit market filled with rotting fruits and vegetables. During the festival, the market was left untended and people could watch the rotting fruit true the windows. The food in the market was equal to the food wastage of an Australian household in a year, as the intention of the Glue Society (the creators of the project) was to provoke a discussion about food waste.
