Jell-o San Francisco a wiggly-jiggly masterpieceLiz HickokSan Franciscounfortunate history
Considering San Francisco’s unfortunate history with earthquakes, making a model of it using a product that’s theme song used to be “Watch that wobble, see that wiggle” could be considered a bit twisted, but that’s part of the point of this unique work by Liz Hickok:
‘Lit from below, the molded shapes of the city blur into a jewel-like mosaic of luminous color and volume. The gelatinous material also evokes uncanny parallels with the geological uncertainties of San Francisco’s landscape. While the translucent beauty of the compositions first seduces the viewer, their fragility quickly becomes a metaphor for the transitory nature of human artifacts’.
The message is in the medium.Posted by Kate Rinsema
