Initial sketch plan for making ‘Involuntary Apple Peel Poems’ a performative, collaborative art intervention - Paul Conneally, Loughborough University Fruit Route, October 2014.
Visitors to the Fruit Route were asked by Conneally to select an apple and peel it trying to do so in ‘one peel’ trying to get as long an apple peeling as possible.
The length was measured in centimetres and this with the persons age was used to find a quote in a book of Wordsworth poetry that was then changed by replacing nouns with apple or Apples.
The new poems were hung with the peel that helped create them on the Landscaping and Gardening Society Shed as poetry installation.
The apples were then pressed on site by Transition Loughborough to make apple juice and cider.
