Koreshan Fruit Bowl - is a collection of four 3D modeled fruits and their digital bisection. Meant to highlight the reverberant qualities of their hollowed interiors, the work is a response to a belief purported by Korshan Unity members that the Earth is a concave sphere that we exist upon the inner walls of.

The collection of fruit is derived from a historic reconstruction at Koreshan State Park (Estero, FL) in which a bowl containing facsimiles of each variety was placed (see photo below). "Koreshan Fruit Bowl" (and additional works currently in production) extends the idea of a hollow Earth by considering the conceptual possibilities offered within the spaces of hypothetical interiors.
