You Art What You Eat

by Oliver Jones

Home, 3177 Pieces of Gum Eating food is easy, but
turning it into art is another
story. We tracked down
some artists whose works
show very good taste.


GUMMING IT UP

Jamie Marraccini's friends helped him chew the nearly 3,000 pieces of gum that went into his 1997 sculpture, "Home" (right). Jamie, who lives in Roanoke, Virginia, has been a bubble-gum artist for 10 years (and has only two fillings). His mother has suggested he work with something other than ABC (Already Been Chewed) gum, but Jamie, a lifelong chewer, said he's stuck on it.
