The New American Landscape
Spark meets artists who have made landscape their subject but with a contemporary twist.
First, encounter the small-scale, yet familiar, buildings of Tracey Snelling's process-driven sculptures.
And Paul Madonna hits the streets looking for cityscape inspiration of which to draw for his weekly San Francisco Chronicle comic, "All Over Coffee."
Then, camp out with photographer Trevor Paglen as he surveys the desert's hidden elements.
Finally, see San Francisco as you've never seen it before: as a jiggling kaleidoscope of Jell-O in sculptures molded by Liz Hickok.
