Bubblegum Aliens

These bubblegum sculptures created and photographed by artist Suzanne Saroff are delightfully disgusting.

half-popped bubblegum that looks like mangled flesh

bubblegum scultpure that looks like an alien

unpopped bubblegum bubble that has saliva all over it, gross

I found this via Grace Ebert at Colossal, who writes:

Conjuring memories of childhood competitions and absent-minded chomping, the photos zoom in on chewed wads of pink, blue, and green that appear almost corporeal, their pudgy folds and pockets evoking the beauty and repulsion of the human body.

I love these but grrrrossssss. (And I don’t know why, but these remind me of Roe Ethridge’s photo of Andrew W.K.)
