Artist Laura Ann Jacobs wanted to do something symbolic when she turned forty (typically a cringe-worthy number for many women), so she invited her San Francisco area friends to a “Put a fork in it, I’m NOT Done” birthday fete. She asked everyone to bring over a mismatched fork – you know, the one that doesn’t seem to go with anything in the utensils drawer? – and participate in a cutting and melting down ceremony of the utensils to create a new sculpture and prove the point that life can be re-invented. The resulting bodice-shaped sculpture is made completely of recycled materials, and word on the street is that Lady Gaga is a fan!
