Candyfall is a public art installation in Nottingham. I was inspired by liquorice allsorts sweets, their simple shapes and bold colours. The five giant ‘sweets’ made of fiberglass injected the park with some needed colour and use. It is also used as urban furniture as they were designed to be sat on and enjoyed. It is quite surreal to have bright coloured giant sweets in a park, and it will hopefully make people who see it smile.
