The biblical narrative of the fall of man is fascinating to me. In doing research I noticed that the old testament never actually stated that the fruit that caused the fall of man was an apple. According to the biblical text, it is only stated that God said not to eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
Genesis 2:8-9 (MSG) Then God planted a garden in Eden, in the east. He put the Man he had just made in it. God made all kinds of trees grow from the ground, trees beautiful to look at and good to eat. The Tree-of-Life was in the middle of the garden, also the Tree-of-Knowledge-of-Good-and-Evil.One of mankind's great question of life was exchanged into a story about a woman eating an apple.
I wanted to use this project to experiment and have the viewer choose which fruit or vegetable could cause the downfall of Man, if it is as simple as that.
