Joel Brochu reproduced a photograph using only candy sprinkles, 221,184 of them to be precise. He placed the small candies using tweezers, double sided tape, and glue. He started the project while he was studying pointillism in University, but it continued on for 8 months before being completed.
What looks like an image of a beagle is actually a high definition photograph of a 4’ by 1 ½’ board covered in 221,184 nonpareils sprinkles. At a distance of 16 feet, the sprinkles blur, tricking the human eye into believing that it is looking at a large photograph. Only when you closely examine the work do you realize that it has been created entirely with tiny spheres of candy.- Joel Brochu
