From above, all three Vodka jello shots look almost the same. A non-transparent light blue layer doesn’t allow to see what’s under the surface — just as the water in the Boston Harbour looks like throughout the year. But independent of when in the year you take a bath, you will always make contact with more faecal coliform bacteria than considered harmless. In proportion to the average amount of coliform bacteria in summer and winter, lemon zest is added to the jellos. Use blueberries for the harbour rocks and add a plastic wale to the summer version and candy cane and powder sugar to give an impression of snow and slush in the winter version. The third glass shows the max amount of coliform within the recreational limits.

    Very cool concept. I wonder how you would represent the data without the need for the text labels? Maybe color of the jello could represent concentration of bacteria, or some other element suspended in the jello like boba or berries?
