I am loving Julia's ring pop art installation, but have one question: how do you keep the bugs away? It would be a lot of fun to create a similar installation in a creative space or kids' room. The kids could help spell out the message or shape with the promise that they wouldn't lick the ring pops. Do you think they could resist the temptation if it were a permanent fixture in their room? When the gallery lights melt the candy, its juice drips down the walls. The piece strikes many emotions and childhood memories as I loved the treat of a sweet ring pop. Now that we are drooling over the ring pop art, we are on the hunt for more artistic candy installations. Julia Chiang created another piece of work incorporating food, this time it was glazed porcelain apples in lieu of real apples.
