The Scavenger Hunt of “Unreasonable Pain and Suffering”

Otherwise known as the best week of my summer.

This was a 2016 GISH challenge to recreate media images of the presidential candidates in play dough. Images and art by the author.
A past GISH challenge: Recreate a famous sculpture out of a single tampon.
My friends and their dog Pickles created this “Kale of Thrones” for dog Pickles to sit on. I later used the image for a task to market GISH to the masses. How’d we do?
“Gingerbread communities are always so quaint.” This challenge was to present a gingerbread community in danger.
I got super into this previous GISH task. Make sure to turn off your tweets before entering.
