Project #2

in The Original 52 Projects

Find a recipe for key lime pie. If you’ve already got a favorite recipe for key lime pie, even better. Make the pie. Take pictures of the pie. Invite some friends over, and take pictures of them eating the pie. Have a friend take a picture of you eating the pie.

Next, get a box and some key limes. Put the limes in the box, along with a handwritten copy of the key lime pie recipe and the pictures that were taken of your key lime pie party. Mail off the box to a friend.

I got this idea from Jasper Johns. I saw a documentary on him, and one of the people interviewed said he had once gotten a box of key limes and a recipe for key lime pie from the artist. I watched this whole documentary on Jasper Johns, all about his art and life as an artist, and I mean Jasper Johns has been making all this great, groundbreaking work for decades, and the box of key limes is what sticks out in my mind.
