umi-nyōbō: the female seamonster who steals fish

This was our entry for the 2010 Gowanus Studio Space Jello Mold Competition. We didn't win, or come even close, I'm guessing. We were going for pretty much the opposite of anything the judges might have been looking for in a design or crafting capacity. It was not cute, designy, tasty, or making any kind of pseudo-artistic statement. Our mold was flavored with fish sauce, sea weed, worchester sauce, and liquid smoke. It was an assault on the senses, and overall insane looking. Funny though, as all the other jellos around ours sat melting away into bright sweet puddles, ours never lost it's shape. No one ate it either.
