Photographer Jenny van Sommers has created this joyful video with Bompas & Parr. van Sommers works on the same London street as jellymongers Bompas & Parr whose work in jelly sees them use it as an exploratory tool in their quest to understand the relationship between food and architecture. “Jellies all have distinct personalities and everybody relates to a different one,” says van Sommers, who adds: “The one on the bottom right is a bit of a shoe-gazer – like me. Then there’s the super-extrovert on the top right-hand side. The orange jelly is the person who is always in a good mood. And the brown one is the person at the disco who is standing there and then suddenly gets a burst of energy and really goes for it, then gets embarrassed and stops dancing. He’s a bit of a weirdo.”
