The Aude Moreau Sugar Carpet is currently on display at Brooklyn's Smack Mellon gallery. The Canadian artist has made the edible piece by way of two pounds of sugar, intricately coating the granules upon one another.

Moreau has managed to capture remarkable detailing in Sugar Carpet. The floral patterns etched out along the sides of the display are reminiscent of Persian rugs. It is at the same time quite delicate as the shuffle of viewer's feet move the structure instantly, causing the sugar to break apart. It has therefore required a great deal of maintenance and up keep, especially since it was completely destroyed in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. Domino Sugar has supported its re-introduction to the art world.
