A so-called art project with 23 Chiquita banana stickers and a sheet of notebook paper.

I Sat With 23 Bananas One Day

Zimmerman Skyrat, 1980. Mixed media (banana stickers on an old sheet of notebook paper).
Original idea ripped off from Richard Hungerford’s infamous Heineken beer piece,
“I Sat With 23 Bottles One Day.”

Bananas are the world’s best-selling fruit. Over 100 billion bananas are eaten every year. The per capita consumption in the United States between 2000-2020 was between 25 lbs and 28 lbs every year. (That’s approximately 37 bananas per person.) The longest banana split ever made, certified by the Guiness Book of World Records, was over 4½ miles long. It was made on April 30, 1988 by the residents of Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania. No word on who helped them eat it.
