One of the pop ups for 2013 Art Basel Miami includes Chef Janice Wong solo installation in Astor Hotel Miami. Chef Janice has carefully crafted 4 edible art installations.
This edible art is inspired by the evolution of life. Always moving, always changing. The white and black spirals represent evolution and life in her unpredictable forms. In this edible painting, the base is made from marshmallows and steamed buns for the white and black spirals.

SHADES OF WHITE
What is black? What is white? What are colors? What is beauty? Without preconceived notions, we can see the white in black, beauty in the grotesque, infinity in finiteness. Inspired by the purity of the color white, Janice employs the perfect circular form of 600 white chocolate spheres in varying sizes and artfully places them together on three walls to create perfection in imperfection. Through this wonderfully minimal installation, she encourages the viewer to reexamine his/her perception of white through the contrast between shadows and light, highlighting the beauty and simplicity of white as both a color and a concept.
