Yes, I realize I'm a day late with this one, but I'm actually going to share with you the way that one group of people celebrated Earth Day... How did you celebrate this year? I celebrated by going to a park with a yoga group and doing sun salutations. Magical!
Happy Earth Day: Here’s a Freakishly Large Salad
In celebration of Earth Day, performance artist Alison Knowles is making a really big salad. While the video above is from the Tate Gallery in London, Knowles' salad-making piece is currently being performed at the Chelsea Market Passage on the High Line.
The Make a Salad performance art was first performed in 1962. Since then, Knowles has brought it around the world. Watch as she drops and assembles an absurd amount of salad ingredients, then taste the finished product. As you eat the salad, you become part of the performance.
Celebrate Earth Day. Celebrate performance art. Chew with your mouth closed.
