Liz Hickok's Jelly World
Ever since I discovered Liz Hickok's gelatin world, I dream of mountains of such a trembling ingredient and of being able to sink a spoon into any of her colorful creations. Don't you have the same feeling when contemplating her work?
Hickok is a San Francisco-based artist versed in photography, video and sculpture, who one day discovered that she was passionate about sculpting the most representative streets and monuments of her country in gelatin. His work has been highly praised by the media, such as The New York Times or San Francisco Magazine.
To create her beautiful miniature monuments, the artist previously makes scale models of the structure she wants to reproduce, which she uses later to make the corresponding molds. Each element is then melted into jelly of different colors, which lights up dramatically from the rear or from below.
Unfortunately, gelatin is not a durable material, so Liz Hickok's gelatin world has to be immortalized in photographs. Who could be aware of said destruction, spoon in hand, to avoid any waste. Do we volunteer?
