This work is a response to the breakup of a long term relationship. It is one of two site specific installations produced during an artist in residency at Chiang Mai University, Thailand. The materials and elements incorporated include: two sugar coated elongated brooms placed on either side of a mound of sugar, a mound of sugar topped with gold leafed tiger feaces (from the Buddhist raised tiger retreat in Kanchaniburi, Thailand), lights, and sugar poured over electrical leads.
