Simone Decker, a talented artist that lives and works in Frankfurt, has created a series of unique sculptures that look like giant chewing gum wads. Enjoy!
I’d like to see more angles… these look a little too off to be real.

I think they arent made of chewing gum. But they look like.
“unique sculptures that look like giant chewing gum wads”
They aren’t actually gum, but I also would have liked to see more angles…some of them look like they might only work from one angle, would be interesting to confirm/negate that idea.
Whatta big sticky chewing gum….Amazing
Those are Fantastic! Very Creative – i’d like to see more pics of the one that is filling the hole
I am a professional artist and my professional opinion is that these installations are ok.Please comment no further about the subject and just go on living your life as you would if you had never seen this.
i say fake, there is a lack of contact shadows in any of they pictures
that’s so fake…terrible photoshopping
How cool:) Even if this is fake, the Idea behind it is brilliant:)
These are horrible photoshop fakes, seriously.
uhm… i actually live in Venice, and nothing pictured here is real.
some of them are bad, but this would be great for a campaign against careless gum throwers who stick it on things and don’t think of how ugly it makes things or the fact that it’ll remain there for quite a while and can hurt animals in the process if they should accidentally step on it or get caught in it.
Eh, don’t know if they are fake or not, but the one filling the hole looks pretty cool. They should fill all potholes that way.
sculptures like that makes you feel so small ;] looks nice, so is it PH fakes of is it true?
These were in Venice for the biennale in 1999.
I hope I don’t step in that!…..hmmmm…I hope there isn’t anyone big enough to step in that! Fun!

Wow that is amazing! I never though chewing would be used as a building material for sculptures? Haha that is actually hillarious when you think about it

I would like to chew some of that gum!
I wonder if they would allow this in Singapore lols…
If any of you went to her website you will see that these were part of a photo exhibition. There were no actual installations in the city itself. These are photographs – no sculptures were ever installed.

I work in a local high school as a cleaner and each year I have seen first had what some one can do with a years worth of gum in a locker.
On any given day we throw out some 5 to 8 lb.s of gum and have to say I do beleave.
These are photos but also beleave it could be done if we saved all the gum chewed at our high schools.

This work is absolutly great, but I’m sorry it’s not sculptures… It’s just pictures. Have a look to her website, she writes “serie of 15 pictures”. Somewhere else I saw that it was an advertising campaign but I’m not sure. Would like to see this real somwhere!
