Temescal Amity Works
Temescal Amity Works is a social sculpture project. Sited in the Temescal neighborhood of Oakland, CA, the project facilitates and documents the exchange of backyard produce, conversation, and collective biography. Purves and Cockrell built a pushcart on which they collected and sold fruit from the citrus trees in community back yards. The cart also served as a vehicle for the artists and neighborhood residents to gather stories, history, and other information about itself, which were published and circulated as a series of free postcards. The artists focused on the Temescal neighborhood because it was originally an “orchard suburb” in the 1920’s.
