Dessert Soups 101: After Dark "Sugar" (12/2, Exploratorium)

'Snow Fungus and Papaya Dessert' (L)

'Sweet Potato Dessert' (R)

Two weeks ago, I added my own contribution to the Exploratorium's monthly After Dark event. December showcased sugar and after much misery and failure on my part and lots of help from the museum staff, I managed to finally put up my installation of a dual film presentation on two monitors. On the left was the Snow Fungus and Papaya and on the right, Sweet Potato. Each dessert parallels each other and through film that was edited to the millisecond, I wished to portray mirror images of sugar within these soups.

First public artwork, the whole event wiped me out, but it was a good feeling when things finally started rolling!
