sugar molded object, It is a holder for

cigarettes.If the user takes a certain

number of cigarettes past a threshold,

water begins to pump out underneath the

cigarette case, destroying it.

The fancy and sophisticated living object

will be contorted. And never again will it

contain a personal cigarette case.

It is a self-reflective object of what the

users are doing to themselves with a

destructive consumption.

Processes:This will be molded using sugar, soap, and paper, which can be destroyed by water, or by melting wax. It will constitute a series of works with variable materials with the purpose of depicting ‘destruction’ resulting from the rate of human consumption. The fist work will be made out of sugar.

Materials:

1) Body object: Sugar
2) Pedestal: ceramic (or possible rapid prototyping processed
object), wood, metal wire
3) Interaction medium: light sensors, water pumps, hit controller/
light bulb, motors, and Arduino etc.
