Sliced and juiced, this fresh produce artwork by Flying Carpet Creative is a commissioned sculptural intervention in the most public and democratic of all spaces – a grocery store.

Sluice is a celebration of sustainability in art, incorporating both biodegradable and repurposed materials. A splash of sliced juicy discs are suspended through the store’s main foyer, gushing from a wall-based, mythical amalgamated “future-fruit” – part citrus, part melon, part..? The aerial ballet of droplets, coupled with the wooden wall element creates a dynamic path through the entryway – a tasty aperitif to the experience that awaits shoppers within. This installation was created with the help of HEB partners at a “painting party” hosted by Flying Carpet Creative where parters could paint the repurposed wooden slats that were used to make the sculpture.
