Throughout the year, Anne Bean installed several works for Reap in which transformation could be witnessed, including:
Remember Me, a gradual decomposition of 5000 apples slowly revealing a hidden message
The horror, the horror - think of the cider that could have been!

The woman is ripping me off! I came up with a conceptual piece called, I DON'T REMEMBER A THING. This was after the gradual fermentation of 5000 apples which slowly revealed some cider which I drank in a single sitting.
Ivanhoe - do you have a phone number, webpage, email adress, or registered charity number for the 'National Society for the Protection of Cider Apples'? I'd like to contact them to help in the worthy cause!
