There is something fascinating about squishing beautiful dessert with the palm of your hand – and Los Angeles-based artist Mar Cuervo totally gets it.
Her project entitled Destroyer features gifs of mouth-watering, delicate sweet items like pudding, cupcakes, wafers and chocolate bunnies, which the artist crushes mercilessly with her bare hands. Surprisingly, it is refreshingly satisfying to watch, even without getting your own hands dirty.
The “softness and fragility” of these edible objects is what attracted the artist’s attention in the first place: “They were screaming to be destroyed. (…) Destroying this gentle objects is a ceremony where I funnel my inner outrage and dissatisfaction against the elements that create them in the first place,” says Mar Cuervo.
