250px_FFCandlesThe IAO teamed up with art collective Fallen Fruit to create a limited edition of Fallen Fruit candles, to be available at Fallen Fruit’s Fruitique, in Westwood, during the months of April and May, 2014.

Fallen Fruit has curated six scents for the candles, reflecting the art collaborative’s continued activities and realm of engagement:

Grass and Dirt
L.A. in the Rain

The 7 ounce candles are made with black wax in a black holder.


FF-250pxFallen Fruit is an art collaboration originally conceived in 2004 by David Burns, Matias Viegener and Austin Young. Since 2013, David and Austin have continued the collaborative work.

Fallen Fruit began by mapping fruit trees growing on or over public property in Los Angeles. The collaboration has expanded to include serialized public projects and site-specific installations and happenings in various cities around the world. By always working with fruit as a material or media, the catalogue of projects and works reimagine public interactions with the margins of urban space, systems of community and narrative real-time experience. Public Fruit Jams invites a broad public to transform homegrown or public fruit and join in communal jam-making as experimentation in personal narrative and sublime collaboration; Nocturnal Fruit Forages, nighttime neighborhood fruit tours explores the boundaries of public and private space at the edge of darkness; Public Fruit Meditations renegotiates our relationship of ourselves through guided visualizations and dynamic group participation. Fallen Fruit’s visual work includes an ongoing series of narrative photographs, wallpapers, everyday objects and video works that explore the social and political implications of our relationship to fruit and world around us. Recent curatorial projects reindex the social and historical complexities of museums and archives by re-installing permanent collections through syntactical relationships of fruit as subject.

Fallen Fruit uses fruit as a common denominator to change the way you see the world.
