Chewing Gum is barely food, so it's about time someone used it for something different. French artist Jeremy Laffon has sculptured these intricate gum-scapes made from his favorite low-calorie snack. Laffon's work is being exhibited at the Association Limousin Art Contemporain in France in a subtle attempt to tell the gallery that it could smell fresher. Despite the fact that this soft and malleable material slowly gives way to gravity and can melt when in contact with heat, at least Laffon built his gum into complex infrastructures instead of just whirling it around his tongue going "look what I can do. look what I can do."

The television on the wall plays Wrigleys commercials 24/7.  (not really)

Despite the pepperminty green color, Laffon's favorite gum is juicy fruit. (maybe)

Laffron began the project when he won a lifetime supply of Extra.  (again, probably not true)
