Bompas and Parr: Return of the Jelly Knights

First we had slow-motion gelatin, now we have a video profile by Gestalten of the british duo Bompas and Parr, who kicked off their career thanks to gelatin. Sam Bompas and Harry Parr made a splash by creating a gelatinous version of St. Paul’s Cathedral, or at least that’s the first place I had heard of them. They still to this day work with gelatin in interesting ways, but they also focus on food experiences. For example, they turned a giant batch of gin and tonic into vapor, so that a room full of people were literally breathing the stuff. Not sure how drunk they got, but the alcoholic vapor was being inhaled straight into their blood stream. The video is a bit long, coming at 12 minutes, but I assure you that it’s quite fantastic and inspiring. If they can make an entire career out of gelatin, you could easily do the things you’re passionate about.
