Using cotton candy as the pivotal subject of his research, Mauricio Limon has been working alongside three generations of a family of cotton candy makers who claim to be direct descendants of the man who introduced cotton candy to Mexico in 1927. Limón began to conceptually explore cotton candy’s plasticity by using it to cover neon structures or to fill spaces like a storefront at a subway station or the interior of a bus. His latest approach to the material has expanded beyond its physical attributes to explore the life and ordeals of the family of cotton candy makers and their commitment to an archaic and unsustainable profession that may soon disappear.
