"The Happy World of Haribo"
"Taste The Rainbow"

Alyssa Karlin’s interdisciplinary works, Taste the Rainbow, and The Happy World of Haribo, create commentary on the hidden dangers lurking within our everyday indulgences. Karlin’s work boldly confronts the issue of food toxicity and the presence of hazardous ingredients that often go unnoticed in our favorite treats. Comprising an array of candies to form the iconic poison symbol, Karlin skillfully draws attention to the potential risks associated with commonly used additives such as Red 40. This vibrant and visually striking representation challenges viewers to reconsider the seemingly innocent allure of these sugary delights. The toxic symbolism serves as a visual metaphor for the harmful ingredients found in many processed foods, inviting viewers to question the trade-off between momentary delight and potential health consequences.
