"An apple is a nearly perfect food, and yet in Christian mythology, it is labeled "the forbidden fruit". Carnal knowledge, surrender to temptation, original sin; much blame is heaped upon the produce of Eden's orchard. However, this association represents the whole, untouched fruit, not what would be found after it has been eaten and discarded. What images can be traced from the core of the apple; do we find Adam and Eve within? Or maybe the outline of our own fantasies?" -Jack Hill
