Isaac Newton supposedly discovered gravity thanks to a falling apple; Steve Jobs intoxicated the world with a brand inspired by brilliant scientist Alan Turing's fatal apple; Chinese people are also fanatical about apples in many contexts.

Far from merely being a tasty and nutritious fruit, the apple has been adopted many times and has developed into a cultural label touching thousands of people.

Ken Miki, a renowned Japanese designer, is among those taken with the apple.

Miki launched an exhibition titled Apple+ in Shanghai recently, bringing his peculiar visions of apples to many Chinese visitors.

The exhibition runs until Dec 4 at the Shanghai Museum of Contemporary Art, 231 West Nanjing Road. Admission is 80 yuan ($12) per person.
