TUTTI FRUTTI is my ongoing investigation (est. 2013) of Brazil's famous Watermelon Woman (Mulher Melancia aka Andressa Soares) and the Fruit Women (Mulheres Fruta), Carmen Miranda, and Chiquita Banana. TUTTI FRUTTI also documents my exploration of the inhabited Internet: the #TropicalInternet, and the search for the #OnlineTropics and #WWWebVacationSpots.

(Above, Brazilian Fruit Women [Mulheres Fruta], left to right: Jackfruit Woman [Mulher Jaca], Apple Woman [Mulher Maรงรฃ], Melon Woman [Mulher Melรฃo] & Pear Woman [Mulher Pera)

Carmen Miranda becomes a banana
and when I buy a Chiquita banana at the supermarket,
wait for it to ripen, and then eat it,
I remember Carmen Miranda
and I eat her as well
