2012 - The Valley of Heart's Delight
In 2012, we represented “The Valley of Heart’s Delight” for our C.O.R.E. piece. An homage to the years when the entire Santa Clara Valley was home to millions of fruit orchards, we chose an iconic fruit cocktail label for the water tower. Inside the tower, plaques represented 48 defunct canneries from many of the cities and neighborhoods in what is now called “Silicon Valley”. Wooden fruit trees, cooperatively painted by members of the community, were laid out in neat rows.
