Edible architecture is all the rage—from cities made of gum and moldy bread. And now you can have your birthday cake and live in it too! For his latest exhibition, "Guns and Ecstasy," mixed-media artist Scott Hove has constructed a labyrinthine mirrored cake room. The "Pentagonal Disco Infinity Chamber" only fits one person at a time, so visitors can dance under the disco ball without feeling too self-conscious.
"Guns and Ecstacy," which opens May 2 at San Francisco’s Spoke Art, will also include Hove's dozen or so devilishly delicious-looking assault weapons frosted and repurposed. And if you think the juxtaposition of guns and buttercream presented in a dance-party atmosphere is puzzling—well, that's the point. Hove constructed the chamber to offer a fantastical space where one doesn't have to think about gun-violence, violations of freedom, or the heated debates about it all. It's a pre-paranoia world, where the motto is "Make Cake, Not War."
