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.
The sculptures have all of the appeal of the best cake you have ever tasted, but can never be eaten. Whereas the nature of edible cake is fleeting, lasting only as long as the brief celebration it was made for, these cakes last as long as the artist or society have the wherewithal to preserve them, in order that they remain a place of pilgrimage, a seemingly idyllic oasis.
