DIYable: ring pop art


Julia Chiang is a brooklyn-based artist who makes use of fantastically odd materials in her work.  her most notable work is her ring pop installations, as she creates words out of this colorful candy.

but the best part is that under the hot gallery lights, the ring pops slowly start to melt, leaving colorful trails down the white gallery walls.  this is definitely a piece for a gallery, not for a home…. BUT you could make this DIYable if you wanted to mount ring pops in a shadow box style frame to ward off dust and bugs.

i love typography on walls, and that ‘s why i am particularly drawn to this installation and it’s always cool to see what physical objects you can make words out of!

Chiang displayed her work at the Oh Wow Gallery in miami during Art Basel with a collective of other artists rita ackermann, tim barber, neck face and aurel schmidt to name a few.
