This playful installation and performance culminated Harries' residency at the American Academy in Rome as part of the Visiting Artist & Scholars Program. Inspired by the food and fountains of Rome, the piece featured numerous clear plastic plates rimmed with gold leaf and filled with spaghetti. Fellow residents took part in a performance in which they carried the plates down the Academy’s formal staircase and placed the plates in the water of the fountain to float.
