Turkey-shaped Jell-O® Mold: 2008 Competition
Bubby's Matzoh Turkey: In this stunning mis-en-matzoh-ball-soup, we are brought back to the original site of sustenance: the womb. Floating, trussed, lulled in a warm bath of chicken broth, we experience the original state of undifferentiated oneness, of satiety.
Which Came First?: The hard-boiled-eggs turkey conflates progenitor and present, history and hard-boiled. We are comprised of that from whence we came. Ab ovo.
Turkey Twinkie Pumpkin Pie: In this unerring portrait of the recent financial crisis, the Turkey Twinkie Pumpkin Pie enacts the specter of unregulated appetite.
The Great Meta Turkey!!!: No further commentary necessary.
Chewing Gum Turkey: This viscerally revolting chewing-gum turkey is acephalic, yet it models, on second look, a brain. The viewer's mind and gag-reflex battle for comprehension: Is our left temporal lobe truly grape-Bubble-Yum-flavored? What of the prevelance of Apple-flavored chicklets in the frontal lobes? The mind reels.
Corn Bread with Chicken Ragout: In this disturbing, almost incestuous doubling -- a turkey comprised of chicken form and chicken feed -- the insides also redouble to the outside, as the viscera are recklessly exposed.
Caramel Popped-Corny: Cindy's carapace-enclosed Caramel Popped-Corny is a character that invites -- yet crisply resists -- dissection. In an abreactive move characteristic of late 20th-century Freudian discourse, Sherman deftly brings us back to the fairgrounds of youth.
Sweet Potato Pineapple: In this post-ethnic creation, an homage to President-elect Barack Hussein Obama, midwestern cuisine commingles with a Hawaiian flavor-profile to produce this watershed turkey moment. Yes we can!
Fresh Mozzarella: The mozzarella turkey embodies the luscious plasticity of form.
Peanut Butter Fudge Turkey
Sesame Noodle Turkey
Hermaphrodite Turkey: With its customary inimitable iconoclastic irreverance, Creative Time offers a defamiliarizing hermaphrodite-turkey, one that conflates apparent oppositions of form and fowl, gourd and gender.
Cow Dung Turkey - from Nepal!
