This installation portrays a culture obsessed with sensationalism, devouring everything new, regardless of its ecological cost—a culture dazzling but ultimately decaying.

The city was designed during several brainstorming sessions the student. In two weeks the entire city was built—carved from clear candle wax and coated with sugar.

When the city was finished, we released 1000 California Harvester Ants in the sugar-coated city.
