Sugar, Starch syrup, Steel, Nylon thread

I made a cube of light measuring two meters across by sprinkling a liquid containing dissolved sugar and corn syrup onto a structure made of iron and nylon threads (a French technique for making confectionery called sucre filé). The density becomes exceedingly diluted: when it reaches a point where it can be perceived, the “thingness” of the material falls away, leaving only the texture. This work is edible. <D.W.>
