Food Lighting: Have your chandelier and eat it too

gummy-chandelierA designer in LA, YaYa Chou, constructed this delicious looking chandelier from “normal” gummy bears (i.e. they’ve not been treated with any preservatives), which she says could last some 10 years (under the right climate conditions, such as in LA). Measuring in at roughly four feet high by two feet wide, the mood food lighting represents an exploration of “the relationship between food consumption and class,” according to Chou.

By rearranging the embellished snacks in the forms of luxury commodity, I wish to pose the questions: Who consume these foods? Who has the choice to choose?

There are a number of other pieces in her “Gummi Bear Series” including this really cool constellation, and my personal favorite – the bear rug (below).
