    Fantastic concept, I wonder which type of sweet was left at the end?
    Always the toffees in my family.

    Great capture!

    I still have the sweet that I took from a similar piece when it was at the ICA a few years ago. Did you take one?

    Actually, it is always replenished. Felix wanted it to go on forever similar to the thought of a lost loved one. So people are allowed to remove candy. But it never runs out. More is always added!
