Whether happily putting wiggly spoonfuls of it in our mouths at mee-maw's house or hastily downing several alcoholic shots of it years later after accidentally catching mee-maw and her next-door neighbor doing a bit of jiggling themselves on the same kitchen floor you used to play Barbies on, Jell-O is part of the fabric of our lives.
San Francisco-based artist Liz Hickok certainly thinks so. Working in photography, video, sculpture, installation, and now, Jell-O, Hickok has created glowing scale models of cities that look as fragile as they do delicious. Hickok's even created one of Scottsdale, which you can see on her website.
Now let's take a ride into Jell-O town.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
