With a Harvard degree in Fine Art and a former career as a food writer, it’s no surprise that Jennifer Rubell has made a name for herself in the contemporary art world with edible media. Her installations—some of which have included 1,521 doughnuts, 2,000 hard-boiled eggs, and one ton of ribs—are super-sized and participatory, and depending on how you look at them, connote the magic of Willy Wonka or the demise of Morgan Spurlock. Pictured above is Rubell’s realization of every child’s wildest dream (and mine, for that matter), a room lined with 1,600 cones of cotton candy entitled Padded Cell. Gluttonous art at it’s finest.
