Mutato-Project by Uli Westphal

German artist Uli Westphal worked on this project entitled Mutato, archiving a collection of non-standard fruits, roots and vegetables, displaying a dazzling variety of forms, colors and textures, that only reveal themselves when lawfully enforced standards cease to exist. “The complete absence of botanical anomalies in our supermarkets has caused us to regard the consistency of produce presented there as natural.”

“Produce has become a highly designed, monotonous product. We have forgotten, and in many cases never experienced, the way fruits, roots, and vegetables can actually look (and taste). The Mutato-Project serves to document, preserve and promote these last remainders of agricultural diversity.”
