Jell-O By The Bay

The Financial District, Pea Soup fog, the Oakland-Bay Bridge, Alamo Square, City Hall, and the view from Telegraph Hill of the Loma Prieta earthquake [Quicktime .mov file]--here's San Francisco, all made with Jell-O.

Thank you. Just -- thank you.

This completes me.

Best thing I've seen created by prolonged boiling of animal skin and connective tissue in a long time. But it needs people. Naked people.

I...wow.


This? This is awesome.

This is ridiculously undulous.

Amazingly cool.

Wow. Holy crap. Wow.

The Pea Soup Fog one is especially awesome, and creepy.

I didn't know that Jello-O could be so sinister.

Oh, oh! I have it! FORGET claymation, I want to see Tim Burton use Jellomation.

city hall looks so... sadly obscene.

are we sure this is actually jello?

I'm blown away either way mind you, but it occurs to me that this might be cg. I haven't gone through the rest of the site to find out and must return to work.

I get the impression that it's actually Jell-O when I look at a couple of the shots. So, if it IS CG, I will be right up with you in staying hideously impressed, shmegegge.

One one way to prove it. Somebody shake the table.

It may be possible.

shmegegge: "are we sure this is actually jello?"

It certainly could be generic gelatin. In fact, with that quantity, buying generic flavorless gelatin and food coloring would probably save a sizable bit of money.

Ok, someone needs to work this in to the Google Map API.

MAP | SATELLITE | JELLO

And the little Google map pointers would be...Cool Whip?

Oh wow how fun to see this here. This is a good friend of mine and indeed it is Jello.

All I know is that every dollar of federal arts grants that went to support this project is a dollar that isn't being used to seismically retrofit the Bay Bridge...!

No. The Jello money would otherwise make napalm.

jdl, that's awesome! color me phenomenally impressed!

You know if I lived there, as great as this is, pretty soon I'd be sick to shit of jello.

They (the artist and her assistants) eat it after the photos are taken.
