Candy Art: Heidi Heisse’s Gumball Covered Hummer

Sugar Coated by Heidi Heisse

Back in 2004 (yes, we realize this is technically old news, but Candy Addict wasn’t around in 2004, so it’s new to us), Arizona-based artist Heidi Heisse created a Hummer covered in gumballs. Well, it’s not really a Hummer, it’s just in the shape of a Hummer. The piece, entitled Sugar-Coated, is meant as a social commentary. The description on her website states:

“This life-sized gum-ball covered HumVee comments on pop culture and reminds us of soldiers handing candy to children in far-flung countries at war with us.”

Pretty deep stuff for gumballs, if you ask me.
