Artist Scott Hove
created this scary/sweet installation of cake art. He made the Cake Vault from acrylic media, paint, wood, and cardboard. Hi-Fructose posted a selection of images from the Cake Vault, including a Quicktime VR tour of the surreal space. From the Cakeland artist statement
Cakeland is a sculptural installation resembling a collection of perfect delicious cakes-- wall mounted, hanging and standing-- a walk-through cake environment complete with its own lighting. It is a sweet refuge, an endless kaleidoscopic landscape of cake, a respite from the grinding realities of the outside world.
