On July 24th, Nate Hill will officially start peddling his Candy Crack between the hours of 10PM and 2AM. Sugar-craving custies that live off the L Train, between the Bedford and Montrose Avenue stops, can “call or text 347-742-2293 for delivery.” The artist will show up to people’s houses in full mascot regalia to sell the “make believe” drugs. And this is what makes the project intriguing according to Hill. That and the interplay involved in letting a complete stranger into your house. He writes:

We are inviting ourselves into your home and there is some risk there. The project’s infantilization of drugs and drug dealing is, of course strange and interesting, but this serves only as a bridge to arrange an unexpected meeting of strangers in what is a theatrical make-believe drug sale in your very own home.
