Michael Parker’s Juicework is a five-day installation, inviting visitors to juice. Visitors entering the gallery are welcomed to wash their hands using a stoneware sink (pictured here, in the background). The basin is supported by three redwood legs joined with a steel structure. The water (activated by a foot pedal) pours out from the melon-light. The lights are porcelain hand pressed from a mold of the ugliest watermelon the artist could find in the summer of 2014. Visitors are offered a hand-towel and invited into the main gallery to juice, using objects made by the artist. These objects are then rinsed in basins (also made by Michael Parker); used towels are strung across a gallery wall.

This project would not have been possible without the collaborative support of Wesley Hicks. A special thanks to Katherine Cox and Troy Rounseville for extensive logistics. The artist also thanks: Shane, Jeanette, Jim, Katie, Maccabee, Kelsey, Ihab, Christine, Sam, Garrett, Brian, Nick, Ariel, Erin, Julian, James, Lauren, Olga, Alyse, Steve, Betty, Robin at Mudd Creek and the CSU Long Beach Sculpture, Wood and Ceramics departments. This project was brought to Human Resources by HRLA programming committee member Luke Fischbeck.
