[I have already seen this...and it's well worth seeing.]

Wang, Professor of Visual Arts at Eckerd College, is a painter, sculptor, photographer, mixed media artist and educational software developer. This project, “Sugar Bomb,” was inspired by the artist’s recent travel to Cuba, his memory of enjoying Cuban brown sugar during the cold war time in China, and the connections Ybor City has with Cuba.
