Marshmallow Cosmos is a replica freeway column mass-produced as a breakfast cereal. The box documents a supporting column from underneath the I-280 freeway in San Francisco, California.
In addition to being a sculptural and architectural work, Marshmallow Cosmos is also a re-branding of generic breakfast cereals. The types and flavors of enclosed cereal vary widely, and the variety of cereal in each box is unmarked.
Marshmallow Cosmos has been included in exhibitions across the USA, UK, the Netherlands, and Sweden. 10% of the purchase price for each box is donated to a local charity in San Francisco.
