William Lamson’s Solarium has 162 Panels made of Sugar

William Lamson's 'Solarium' has 162 panels made out of sugar. The panels are cooked to different temperatures and then sealed between two panes of window glass. The cabin works both as an experimental greenhouse, growing three species of miniature citrus trees, and a meditative environment.

Solarium

"I first worked with sugar in 2010 on a project called A Work In Slow Descent. I was drawn to do a project with sugar because it is a basic substance that is both food which contains within it an entire spectrum, only visible as it is heated." - Lamson
