Artists Undertake Expansive Sugar Cube City in Harlem

Some people like sugar in their coffee or their soda, or as a minor additive in their pasta sauce. Others, however, know that sugar was meant to act as the building blocks of a vast and extensive cityscape. A group of artists in Harlem count as some of these folks and are putting their sugar where their mouth is.

Introducing Sugar Metropolis, a community-driven arts space made entirely out of sugar cubes. The idea is simple: make the biggest and most awesome city imaginable entirely out of sugar. Appearing in the appropriately named Sugar Hill district of Harlem, the project is expected to use over 500,000 sugar cubes. That's quite a lot of sugar highs and then unavoidable crashes.

The coolest part is that anyone who visits the metropolis is invited to add to it. Sugar is not the purview of artist alone. However, the project still needs some funds to make sure it happens on schedule. Thus, a Kickstarter was born. If you care at all about a gigantic sugary dystopia, you should kick in a few crystals.
