Gummy Bear Rug

We have found the rug of our dreams here at Rug Rag. Taiwanese artist YaYa Chou has created a bearskin rug out of Gummi Bears as part of series. This 7" x 32" x 30" rug was created in 2006 out of gummi bears, faux nails, wire and canvas, and is affectionately known as "Simon". YaYa states on her website "In this series, I explored the relationship between food consumption and class. The bright colors and soft texture of children's snacks construct a romantic scenario which draws my attention to the dangerous ingredient behind them. By rearranging the embellished snacks in the forms of luxury commodity, I wish to pose the questions: Who consume these foods? Who has the choice to choose?"

We aren't looking to make any choices, but we do know that if we had that rug, the choice to eat or not eat would be very very difficult.
