During a Food Justice residency at Santa Fe Art Institute, a pallet used on the farm was made into a frame and filled with native Hubbard squash grown there during that season. The squash was distributed within the Santa Fe community, at farmers markets, natural food stores, to chefs, neighbors and artists in residence at SFAI. Distribution was therefore a sculpture and a performance but also a way to distribute food.


Over a two-week period the pallet frame was filled and emptied, marking time as well as the distribution and consumption of a native food source. The squash that filled the frame was a small fraction of the total amount that circulated in Northern New Mexico that fall.
