Design by Been of Carrot Design – “Sweet Hair”
When I was a child, I loved to bury my face in candy floss. I can still remember how the sugar melts between the teeth and tongue; if you eat it too fast, it is easy to get sugar all over your mouth and can resemble the beard of an old man. Remembering this, I thought: why not extend the pleasures of taste to a feast for the eye? Through experimenting I came to realise that, by using a prop candy floss beard and moustache, we can easily extract common objects, such as seemingly lifeless fruits and vegetables from their usual existence.
