A Subtlety or the Marvelous Sugar Baby


Kara Walker


Domino Sugar Factory, Brooklyn, New York




Eric Hagen, Head of Sugar asked to be part of the team that would cover the massive structure. 35 tons of sugar were used to cover the milled foam structure. A combination of simple dumping, a custom shoots, and slathering on with our hands. We used a concrete mixer to create the sugar mix and then hoisted buckets on multiple lifts.

Towards the end of the project, Tim Daly and others on the team decided to create a small momento for Kara. We made a small rubber squeek toy of the sphinx. I was in charge of milling a small version out of foam. Later it was casted by Tim.
