What happened when artist Erno-Erik Raitanen erected a huge wall of pink candy-floss in an art gallery? It disintegrated within days. For the fun installation 'Cotton Candy Works,' the imaginative artist hung a huge wall of pink cotton candy which visitors to the art gallery were encouraged to actively pull or eat off the wall.

The cycle continues as the candy returns back to its original form once ingested and the gallery is left with a blank wall again. I'd be interested to find out how long this installation would last if there were some kids around the gallery -- I'm sure it would be gone even quicker than in a few hours. This is an engaging interactive example of modern art, which poses deep questions about decay and the circle of life in a lighthearted way.
