French artist Jérémy Laffon wants to stick gum to your new shoes. So he built a gallery floor made of gum. And he wants to build insanely huge gum towers. So he put thousands of sticks of gum together then applied heat. These fragile leaning towers of distaster are structurally unsound due to Laffon’s carefully chosen heat gun application points. He built spearmint perfection, then ruined it just enough to make the little metropolis feel alive.
