Coming to terms with being human.



I have a thing for photographs of diorama scenes. There is something about treating an imagined world as a photographic subject that I find enchanting. Lori Nix and Liz Hickok have both tickled my fancy in recent months. Each artist succeeds in creating the feeling of looking at a dream which seems to come from a well proportioned blend of mundane objects, unexpected color palates, and slightly askew angles. There is also something to be said for the strategic use of detail. Nix's works have just enough detail to make the mind want to believe in the substance of the subject. Yet, not encountering the exacting detail strived for by counterfeiters, the mind relaxes into iconic nature of the piece. Or at least, mine does.

In other news, I love this video.
