Jennifer Rubell, who is based in New York City, has done all these participatory large-scale art projects with food as media. This includes, according to her bio, ‘one ton of ribs with honey dripping on them from the ceiling; 2,000 hard-boiled eggs with a pile of latex gloves nearby to pick them up; 1,521 doughnuts hanging on a free-standing wall; a room-sized cell padded with 1,800 cones of pink cotton candy’. Art makes us hungry.
