Kara Walker's A Subtlety, or the Marvelous Sugar Baby (2014) was commissioned by Creative Time to be created at the Domino Sugar Factory in Brooklyn, New York. Together with a team of artists, engineers, fabricators, and other partners, Walker realized her massive sugar sphinx, vast blocks of polystyrene foam (recyclable) courtesy of the Insulation Corporation of America―the sugar remains were hauled to the dump by Action Carting, with the blessing of the real estate firm and owner of the vacant factory, Two Trees Management, and with input from Michael Ferrari Fontana, master sculptor, designer, and 3D modeler, and architects and rock-climbing consultant Pancho Soekoro.
