Melted Gummy Bears Make for Stunning Lightboxes


Spanish architects working on an art project found artistic inspiration from a bag of Haribo. While snacking on the gummy bears, Marta Alonso Yebra was trying to think of ways to use melting of material to form art, but worried about the toxicity.

“I realized, wait: This is very beautiful, and it’s similar to plastic, but we can eat it. I was sure if I melted it, it wouldn’t be toxic.”

Each ‘light box’ uses about two pounds of Haribo, and re-hardens after it is formed. Beautiful (and tasty) inspiration indeed. Via MyModernMet:
