Last week we excitingly featured Le Creative Sweatshop’s Jelly and Light. Stylish and well-composed, the images were also surprisingly still. We all know that’s not how jelly naturally behaves. Jelly’s the most erratic of all food stuffs, especially – especially! – when it’s being blown to smithereens by powerful explosives. Ryan Hopkinson, with the help of jelly mongers Bompas and Parr, recently documented the wonderfully ethereal moments at which jelly erupts, and has created a series of images meant, the photographer says, to prompt us all into questioning what exactly it is at the end of our spoons
