To answer everybody's doubts:
1. "Chandelier" turned soft in LA's 90 degree summer and hardened again in winter.
Gummi bears only melt when temperature rise above 200 degree.
I do think the moisture will post a problem.
But as my gallery pal put it: Basic vermin and, uh - flooding or fire? In which case, no art would be safe. No art material will last forever if you don't take good care of it. "Chandelier" is a piece of art, a concept, not a bag of produce.
2. I have experimented on leaving gummi bears(including the melted ones) out on the street in LA, the result is, there may be only two species on earth who consume this food: Human and Some Dogs. No, no roaches, no vermin, no ants, not even fruit flies... I wonder if mold grows on coal-tar? Artificial coloring came from coal-tar, you know.Although sounds tough, gummi bear still can't compete with Twinkies when it comes to the forever-long shelf life. We should run a contest calling all durable snacks to come out and show us what they are made of:)
