Kockacukorból épített metropolisz - megkóstolnád? 

5000 people build giant sugar metropolis

Here is an art piece for those with taste, albeit those with a sweet tooth. Over 5,000 people from all over the world have spent the past 5 weeks building a ‘Sugar Metropolis’ at the Ulster Museum in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

The sugary city of the future was finally completed on Sunday (17 Nov) under guidance of sculptor Brendan Jamison, who worked with sculptor Mark Revels and a team of assistants. The giant collaborative artwork, the largest ever created in Northern Ireland, has been completed as part of the 132nd Royal Ulster Academy of Arts Annual Exhibition on the top floor of the Ulster Museum.

Jamison states "it has been a wonderful experience meeting people from all across the globe who came to the museum and played a key role in the construction of this sculpture installation. We trained visitors on how to build with the sugar cubes and asked them to construct anything from their imagination, with a focus on what they would like to see in a city of the future. It has been fascinating to watch so many different styles of architecture develop over the 5 weeks of construction. The result is a very democratic approach to art and successfully embraces multiculturalism.

"In the end, the project has demonstrated the power of collaboration in art, with thousands of creative minds working together in the realization of a sculpture beyond any one person’s singular vision. It belongs to everyone who came along to build it, across the entire spectrum of life, from young children to pensioners; the energy in the gallery has been amazing."
