Cotton Candy and Vending Carts

After presenting a dunk tank  and a hot dog vending cart at the SubZero festival two weeks ago, I am  now scheming as to how to include a cotton candy machine in a future ICA program. A friend sent me the link to a show called Global Street Food curated by Mike Meire at the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein, Germany. The show happens to include a stunning cotton candy display.

Though I am not going to Germany anytime soon, I am so excited about this exhibition which includes improvised kitchens typically found in public places from around the world as readymade art objects in a gallery. Check it out.
