A Wobbling Glob of Patriotism


The artist Liz Hickok makes things out of Jell-O. She made a replica of the White House in observance of Obama's first 100 days (his 100th is this coming Wednesday), and she made a video of it. You may have seen her Jell-O city of San Francisco, which attracted quite a bit of attention.

Watch the video, AFTER THE JUMP...

She explains: "A hopeful vision of the positive changes that the White House will go through with its new residents."

But is it art?

  2. honor of someone's first 100 days. The White House isn't his. She should have made a trillion dollars out of jello!! : )

  3. Is the implication here that the President's gotten off to a shaky start? That would be unfortunate.

  5. Well, I guess technically she "made a video of it." It was more like a minute-long photograph that, as it went on, brought one thought to mind: how do you make white Jello?

  6. As it took the self-proclaimed "fierce advocate for gay & lesbian rights" less than 100 hours to turn to Jello, I'd say this creation is overdue.
