Nathan Sawaya is an master Lego sculptor and Maurizio Savini is an ace with chewing gums and fiber glass. The following creations are made by the simple pink bubblegum.
Chewing-gum, as a matter of fact known in Italian also as “ American gum “, was introduced by American soldiers with the end of World war two together with jeans, nylon, stocking and boggie-woggie. Its association with a state of euphoria of change and carefree youthfulness some how carried on in the following decades. Also for those born in the sixties as Maurizio Savini and I, chewing-gum reaches in the mind ‘s meanders at a tie with childhood and adolescence, and a light pressure of a future still to be built and dreamt and the slaughterhouse of personal and collective memories of the past which is gone, no one knows where when and with whom.
