It’s possible this is the most intriguing food-as-art I’ve seen yet! San Francisco artist Liz Hickok sculpts, molds and casts scale models of urban city landscapes using Jell-O.
There’s a lengthy process to get these installations ready for their eventual decay. She tells on her website that the installations can become quite uncontrollable and as you can imagine the Jello-O is susceptible to temperature and movement so the sculptures are often done in her studio.
Not only is there the obvious skill needed to sculpt the scaled-down landscapes but she paints backdrops, lights and adds dramatic effects such as fog to the installations.
