The City Of San Francisco Constructed From Jelly

When you think of art and landscapes, you might have visions of expansive paintings, time-lapse videos or sweeping panoramic photographs - you're probably not thinking about jelly. And yet, that's the key ingredient for visual artist Liz Hickok.

She's the individual behind these luminescent and colourful historical landmarks of San Francisco - all of which are made from layers and moulds of jelly.

In her own words:

"I create glowing, jellied scale models of urban sites, transforming ordinary physical surroundings into something unexpected and ephemeral. 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. I have always been interested in architectural scale models of cities, and how photography can play with the viewer’s sense of scale, blurring differences between the real city and the constructed one. "
