2005, Candy, glass bowl, video, 19:22 min.
The project began on the day that Yamashita and Kobayashi created a giant candy the size of a football (18cm in diameter).
From that day they kept licking the candy day after day for about six months, with the aim of creating an ordinary candy, the kind you can buy on the market.
The video work, shot with the artists in profile, records this process. While they were licking, the landscape in the background changed from snowy winter to summer.
