For his most recent work, artist John Dilnot created a series of boxes containing rows of diseased "bad" apples neatly arranged on shelves. At first glance the boxes suggests a nostalgic feeling for a lost Eden, but on closer inspection they reveals a more ambiguous intention. The artist has relished recreating these rotting fruits and in so doing subverts the idea that decay is "bad".
