BABYHARVESTER is a collaboration between New York City based publication Slice Harvester, Babycastles and illustrator Yusuke Okada. The installation contains recreations of nostalgic American iconography from the late 20th century in the format of a pizzeria and arcade.

Featuring:
DUKE REUBEN'S PIZZA KINGDOM
“This is my long-in-the-works collaboration with the Babycastles dudes, finally coming to fruition. Basically, we are installing a pizzeria, which I think is called DUKE REUBEN'S PIZZA KINGDOM, into on of the exhibition spaces at Clocktower Gallery and it is gonna be BANANAS. There will be pizza (kindly provided by Pizza Suprema), video games, art by Yusuke Okada, a bunch of total weirdos, and I will be debuting the new (and FINAL?!) issue of Slice Harvester Quarterly!!!!” - Slice Harvester
