Padded Cell was a tasty (surprising) and slightly twisted art piece by Jennifer Rubell that made its debut at a Performa Arts' Red Party in November.

The Padded Cell had its walls and ceiling completely lined with Cotton Candy, which party-goers were allowed to eat upon entering. Meant as a succulent but subtle take on the hidden perils of pleasure, the piece was an enormous hit. Although Padded Cell is no longer on display, Jennifer has stated that more appearances are forthcoming. Stats for Cotton Candy Enclosures Trending: Older & Warm
