Desserts to be Suspended and Balanced from the Ceiling!
Delicious Art- “Suspension”- at Plains Art Museum- for one evening only!
It’s Dessert, Art, Installation AND it’s hanging from the ceiling! By eating the delicious desserts, the piece shifts and tips like a scale.
Stevie ‘Wild Card’ ‘Kill it with Fire’ ‘Firecracker’ Famulari has created another food art installation which shifts, tips and moves as people eat the dessert- for the opening reception of ‘Vogel’s Gift Exhibition’ and ‘Big Country’ on Thursday evening, 23 June 2011 at the Plains Art Museum.
“Suspension”, an Edible Dessert Art Installation responds to the guests as they eat it! Just as the mechanisms of a scale works, this piece is hung from the ceiling beams, and balances evenly with flavored desserts. And as guests eat the beautiful colorful delicious desserts- the piece moves, rotates and tips up and down. If all the guests choose to eat from one side of the piece only, the plates of food can drop as far down at the guest’s lower legs.
Inspired by the awareness that there is an action and reaction, or consequences to ones choices- this edible installation physically responds to the choices of desserts people choose to eat.
“It’s been great fun and challenging to explore balance in so many ways! A balance of flavors, a balance of the materials, and physically to have the artwork structurally balance. Life is about finding the ideal balance for each person. And also realizing what we have consequences to our choices which affect others.” says Famulari of latest wild creation.
“Suspension” is made of light weight metals and cables, and is 10’ x 10’ x 10’. Located on the 3rd floor of the museum for the opening reception, this piece’s scale, size, material, and forms are inspired by the conduit patterns on the 3rd floor ceiling.
Desserts flavors include: Basil, parmesan cheese, dark chocolate; Bourbon, pecan, dark chocolate; Apricot, Coconut, White Chocolate; Rose Petal, Vanilla dessert
