Kaddish For Michael is is an interactive installation made of hundreds  of 12 cm raspberry flavoured hard candy babies which are placed on the ground and left to interact with the audience and  the environmental elements  such as humidity and air temperature.

Hard candy is very sensitive to humidity and temperature of the air, which causes it to melt. Beside this, audience is also left the choice whether or not to engage with the work, to destroy the candy babies by walking over them. to tiptoe around them or simply observe from the side. The choice of cumulative small shapes is emphasising the presence of something which we pretend not to see and which is part of our everyday life.
