Art: San Francisco In Jell-O

San Francisco based artist Liz Hickok had quite some success and write-ups in the press for her work “San Francisco In Jell-O”.

Hickok a former student in Fine Arts at Mills College in Oakland California describes the “San Francisco In Jell-O” as following:

…This project consists of photographs and video, which depict various San Francisco landscapes.

The Jell-O sculptures quickly decay, leaving the photographs and video as the remains…
