This piece is inspired by the local organizations in Charlotte such as Block Love and Feed the Movement, that go about the work of meeting people’s’ basic needs where existing structures fail. It references an old story about a woman being shown a view of heaven and hell. In both places, there is a giant, delicious looking pot of food, surrounded by people with long spoons. In “hell“, the people try and fail to feed themselves. In “heaven”, the people use their long spoons to feed each other. A companion to “Our Streets”, it is an attempt to envision a more just future.
