    "Push Pull" Taffy Performance

    Part of the artist’s explorations of sugar, "Push Pull" explores notions of desire and excess. Sun-warmed masses of taffy hang from a metal hook while attendants manipulate it, keeping the mass of candy suspended while also stretching and pulling it into amorphous shapes. Visitors are invited to consume chunks of the slowly stretching sculpture, resulting in a sensory and conceptual exchange.
