Usually bricks-and-mortar bring to mind the feeling of permanence, stability and protection, but the Brooklyn-based artists Lisa Hein and Robert Seng have instead, swapped out the concrete building blocks for something a little bit more wiggly jiggly – moulding colourful slabs of juicy jelly in a range of flavours to assemble a partition.

Entitled ‘bruise’, the jelly bricks are laid with gypsum paste and subsequently supported by a durawall truss. The installation is mixed, cooked and assembled on site, and though the properties of jelly see its gelatinous form decay and melt over time, construction still continues, with only the mortar left in tact.
