For my entry in the year’s Gowanus Studio Space Jell-O Mold Competition I made this jello and plastic replica of the Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant. A striking piece of engineering and architecture located a mere 500 yards from my apartment. The facility has been a point of interest for me since moving in to my neighborhood and a frequent photographic subject. I used 1 liter bottles to mold the gelatin “digester eggs” flavored with raspberry and french vanilla and used food die to mimic the color of the eggs lit at night. Super bright LED lights were used to illuminate the jello from behind. I competed against many wonderful and creative entries and sadly did not win. However, since being inspired by the architectural jellos of Liz Hickock and Bompas and Parr, this is a project I’ve wanted to take on for a while and am very happy with the finished product. Congratulation to all the winners of the competition!
Photos of the event will be posted on the GSS website this week, but in the meantime Eater covered the event and Gothamist gave me some love. I wasn’t able to be at the actual competition since I was out-of-town so a very special thank you to Starr and Art for representing me! And thank you to Marie for helping me construct the catwalks for the model.

This weekend at the Gowanus Studio Space in Brooklyn is the 2nd Annual Jell-O Mold Competition! Competitors will battle it out for mold supremacy and my entry will be in the running. I am very exciting to see what I am up against as last year’s winners were very crafty. Come on out if you are in the area: Saturday, June 26th from 6 to 10pm, 166 7th Street, Brooklyn. If not, stay tuned for photos of my unique design.
