If you’re like me, then you used to take chewed gum, stretch it out and make shapes with it. My favorite shape was the sphere. It was easy to make – all I had to do was roll the gum around in my hands, turning the pink tooth-molded gum into a brown ball. Then I would pop it back in my mouth (and it was more salty than sweet, at this point), chew, mold, and repeat. Maurizio Savini has found a slightly more sanitary way to make gum art. He took pre-chewed chewing gum and made it into beautiful, and wonderful smelling, art. It you ak me, this is crazy. If you can make art like this with gum, I wonder what other crazy things you can do with it; who knows, you may, someday, be able to chew it to draw flavor.
