One week and one day from today is the Jell-o Mold Competition in Brooklyn. I've been thinking and thinking and thinking about the jello, the aesthetics, the logistics. So many choices.
Today I am going to the Stony Brook Fine Arts center in Jamaica Plain. I've been looking for a vacuum degasser to eliminate nasty bubbles in my silicone medium. (Don't you just hate that?!). After a long search seriously about three months and many bizarre cold calls, I've finally found a place that has one. And merely blocks from my house. Isn't that ca-razee!?
Thanks to the helpful hands of Ben at the Stony Brook Fine Arts, I will be making my mold box and pouring my mold. It'll take about 24 hours to solidify and post-cure. Just in time to test out the jello recipe Michelle and I will be making on Saturday afternoon.
Here is a hosted by Thu Tran of IFC's Food Party as she narrates the Jello Competitors from 2009.
Keep posted for more information on the road to Jell-o.
