Friday Night’s Fish Baked Potato

Friday Night Fish Baked Potato is a video poem narrated entirely out of animated, green Jell-O. Words to jiggle, move, and narrate with their physicality, bringing weight back into digital text. Friday Night Fish Baked Potato lets the weight of language flop, flounder, and re-form, exploring child-like wonder of the alphabets digital landscape as it tells a story about the American dinner-table experience, the containment of food, and the containment of emotion, all through this substance — Jell-O — that stubbornly refuses to be contained or controlled.
