The Gowanus Studio Space is holding a contest for the best Jell-O Mold:

Jell-O is the perfect medium for design in these times of restraint given its versatility, economy, and availability. This is why it’s time for a comeback of the Jell-O proportions of old: soaring heights, strange colors, object suspension!

The Gowanus Studio Space’s Jell-O Mold Competition will pit designers against each other in an effort to make the Jell-O mold cool again. Competitors will battle it out for mold supremacy in the following categories:

  • Creativity
  • Aesthetics
  • Structural/sculptural ingenuity
  • Edibility/culinary appeal
  • Best use and showcase of Jell-O

A crack panel of respected judges will announce the winners at 8pm on the day of the event. The judging and awards ceremony will be held at the Gowanus Studio Space in Brooklyn.   

The deadline for entries is June 12, with a registration fee of $15/$10 for students.

  1. Somebody should enter some Jell-O molded back into the shape of a horse’s hooves and/or skin. Hell, you could do a whole anatomical model of a horse’s foreleg, with white bones and pink muscles and red veins and blue arteries and everything. Becky could cast her femoral condoyle in Jell-O!
