Brooklyn-based artist William Lamson has taken landscape art to new heights of sweetness, having created an art installation in which sugar is a primary medium. On the bucolic grounds of the Storm King Art Center in upstate New York, Lamsom has erected a small house constructed from 162 panes of sugar-sealed glass. Solarium, according to Lamson, “references a tradition of isolated outposts designed for reflection. Each of the 162 panels is made of sugar cooked to different temperatures and then sealed between two panes of window glass. The space functions as both an experimental greenhouse, growing three species of miniature citrus trees, and a meditative environment.” To which we can only say, with not a grain of irony, sweet.
