San Francisco In Jell-O

Similar to making a movie set, Liz Hickok added backdrops, which were often painted, along with elements such as mountains or trees. The exhibit was dramatically lighted from the back or underneath.

Scottsdale in Jell-O

The Scottsdale in Jell-O project, was an assembly of hundreds of miniature buildings made of Jell-O, lit from below, and put on display for viewers to see and smell. The pieces represented both the existing area around the Civic Center and the envisioned areas around the new Waterfront development on the Arizona Canal, with future development cast as clear buildings and trees.
