Frugivore 2011- 

Frugivore is an ongoing project in which I grow plants from the seeds of cherry tomatoes that I first purchased from the grocery store, then ate, and deposited in my waste. The seeds are then harvested from my waste and grow into fruiting plants. This project began in 2011, and I am continuing the cycle by eating and growing further generations of the same tomatoes. This project illustrates the process of seed scarification; the way in which seeds travel through the digestive system of an animal in order to be broken down and prepared for germination and growth.
