Moments of inspiration

When a competition in Australia was called for a tapestry measuring 30 x 30cm to be submitted, the protest regarding the size was large. (tapestries can have dimensions of 5 x 10m: 50 sqm) How much space can be displayed on 30 x 30cm? A whole universe, of course. So on August 8th, 2011 – the 8 as a horizontal symbol for infinity – all fruits that were available at the time, apple, raspberry, blackberry, strawberry, plum, currant, blueberry, were transformed into planets around the lemon sun – big enough?
