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.
