The Sage Table
mixed media

The Sage Table is part of a movable feast - a distribution of food and information. This communal table is a mobile planting surface, site for meals, museum, library, granary and a place for gathering. The table is charged by the archetype of the family dinner table - a site of growth, a site of interaction, and a site of learning through generational exchange. A hand painted map hanging above the table charts the City of Los Angeles as a host for the table through time, connecting its past, present, and future sites. As the table moves around the city, it will continue to grow seasonal edibles for harvesting; as the availability of produce is one of the most apparent way of understanding the passing of seasonal time in Los Angeles. Participants in this first installation of The Sage Table include Katie Bachler, Allison Danielle Behrstock, Janica Ley, Shatto Light, Edie Kahula Pereira, and Michael Pinto.
