Wonder where this was and what it was for...
Also, we don`t know how long the sculptures stayed up (or that they were somehow made inedible through the construction process) - so maybe they took them down before the oranges began to rot and then donated them? Even if they used glues on the rinds, the inside would still be fine.

even apart from hungry people, it`s still a waste. give ME the oranges, i love them.

and that`s not art. it`s a giant craft project. i know they call themselves `outsider artists` these days to bump the numbers on their price tags but this is no different than a 60 year old retired mechanic who welds together old car parts into the shape of a giraffe and paints it purple. waste.of.time-

Awesome, that would be really frustrating if you were almost done and they all fell. The first thing I thought when I saw this was, wow I bet those starving kids they always show in commercials are jealous.

This kind of reminds me of an episode of Dirty Jobs, when he had to clean fruit covered parade floats.
And yeah, what ht hell, waste of food much.
I`d hate to see it rotten.

"That`s not art, it`s just a waste of food. Leave it to "artists" to value "art" over helping the poor who can`t afford to eat."

Funny you should say this when its usually the "artist" who is starving. :D

Yes because a balanced diet contains nothing but oranges... If they weren`t going to use oranges to make these sculptures, the oranges would have been bought by general public etc. Either way, unless one of the main producers of oranges decides to end world poverty with huges donations of fruit, these oranges would never have helped starving people. BTW if you feel so strongly about waste, do something AFFIRMATIVE. God damn hypocrisy...

well there`s several points about this-

1. Good art
2. Waste of oranges if of course they don`t get eaten
3. When it rots, do they they just chuck em away or have they preserved them in some way?

Looool - what a self-righteous board we have here! Everybody complaining about the waste... I suppose you all use recycled paper, drive hybrids, save water and electricity, finish all your meals to the last grain of rice...

this is what they do with thousands of fruits. wasting them on making pieces of poo when there are people who don`t get anything to eat out there. the human race has just sunk lower.
