Elizabeth Hickok's Jell-O San Francisco.

Elizabeth Hickok depicts various landscapes of San Francisco using jello. This one above is the Bay Bridge.

"I make the landscapes by constructing scale models of the architectural elements which I use to make molds. I then cast the buildings in Jell-O. Similar to making a movie set, I add backdrops, which I often paint, and elements such as mountains or trees, and then I dramatically light the scenes from the back or underneath. The Jell-O sculptures quickly decay, leaving the photographs and video as the remains."

I am astonished at the lengths that peopled wkill gio to to use food in the arts. Inact, that's why I am writing Artists at the Table: Food Images in the Arts. Just about ready to go to a publisher. Maybe Ten Speed Press in Berkeley. Anyhow, your work is now included, due to the nice coverage in the NY Times on Feb 6. Good on ya,mate!
Hope that you don't mind.
