Homecoming Cake
Cake, 15x11", 2015


The Church of Scientology began construction of Trementina Base in New Mexico in the late 1980s. A topographical cake was made to represent an aerial view of Trementina Base, and was served during an opening reception. The cake is meant to serve as a contrast between Scientology's secrecy concerning the formidable Base and the creation of a small-scale replication that is meant to be consumed and shared.
