argentinian artist luciana rondolini has perhaps managed to make many a sweet tooth’s dreams come true with her project ‘calamidad cósmica’ (cosmic calamity). the monolithic popsicles are a frivolous manifestation of the latin expression ‘tempus fugit’ which translates to ‘time flees’ –the slow, deliberate disintegration of the artwork a metaphor for the actuality of time, its inevitable capacity to eliminate, destruct.

  • If I could own any piece of art in the world it would be this giant melting popsicle. Except why does it have to get all deep and be a metaphor about time. Its a cool ass giant popsicle. You had me at that.
