Stay tuned to The Verge for more coverage out of TGS 2014.

Artists Henry Hargreaves and Caitlin Levin decided to play with those ideas, recreating famous museums and galleries from around the world using only gingerbread and candy.

The pair showcased Gingerbread and Candy Art Galleries at Miami’s Art Basel festival earlier this month. Each image of their sculpture is shot in black and white, “a deliberate antidote to the vivid colors and sweetness” associated with gingerbread houses.
