500 Ice Cubes
2. 13. 2018 / Food
Five hundred gummy bears frozen in ice cubes. A happening that took place in front of the Sage Art Center in Rochester, New York. The ice cubes were given away to the people walking by.
The prompt was to make 500 of the same thing to illustrate the impact (or lack thereof) of quantity in creative works.
︎︎︎ Initial Thoughts
I immediately thought of ice cubes, which can be made easily in large quantities. Ice also makes an interesting medium because it melts.
Inspiration: Francis Alÿs, Paradox of Praxis 1 (1997)︎. The artist pushed a block of ice across Mexico City until the ice melted completely. Image from fracisalys.com
