This year's Jell-O Mold Competition at the Gowanus Studio was a real visual feast. Participants submitted their elaborate and often bizarre concepts to compete in various categories, and for the glory of being helmed geniuses of a thriving artform -- Jell-O.

Artists were judged on creativity, aesthetics, structural integrity, badassness, and more. Entries varied greatly, from a working transistor Jell-O piano, to a chocolate pudding Obama bust, to a Chicken birthing chicken-flavored gelatin eggs. Yes.

Browse these pictures and you will never scoff at this jiggly treat again.
