It's a Small World After All

Best solution? Miniature yourself.

Allan Teger's Bodyscapes are outstandingly beautiful, and mostly NSFW. This image isn't, but hints at the possibilities:

Realistic models by Matthew Albanese

thanks for the addition of a very nice little gallery, RedLemon.
If there's at least one thing that my vast Erotic Art Collection doesn't have enough of it is close-up bodyscapes, and this idea makes it all the wilder.


- - - - - - -

This is a another contribution I'll be relaying here, and it is from (originally featured by) The Telegraph:


This may look like an Antarctic scene, but it is a model called 'Sugarland', made by artist Matthew
Albanese out of 20 pounds of sugar, jelly and corn syrup. The crystals were grown in his studio
over the course of two months
-- Picture: MATTHEW ALBANESE / SOLENT


Some of his designs measure less then three feet in length but the effect is gained by the
perspective from which the photo is taken. This scene of rolling plains of grass blown by the
wind is made out of faux fur (fields), cotton wool (clouds) and sifted tile grout (mountains)


This image of the Aurora Borealis was made by photographing a beam of coloured light against a
black curtain to achieve the edge effect. The stars are simply strobe light through holes in cork board

combining two themes already seen above, (Small Origami, Teger's Bodyscapes) it's another example of the tiny motions.

Pie Pops

Pie Pops | Luxirare

...

I don’t want commitment. I want to be promiscuous with my food. I want to eat pie, but I don’t want a whole slice- I want to try other flavors too, but for just a little, and move onto another. If I have one slice, I may have guilt hanging over me all day. I want little pies, yes, with more pie crust than filling. 50 calories or less, no guilt. Eating pie slices makes me feel fat. Lolipop-Pies, perhaps this would work.

Jet, I just found this thread of yours even though I remember you saying you were going to do it.

I'll find more small things to contribute, but for now here are a few "small cars" I have in my photo collection:





When we were shopping for a laser cutting machine, I first saw collections of all sorts of miniature objects made with a laser cutter, like this Tiny-Rex

Nick, I did try at least twice to redirect towards this thread, stating that I had, indeed, accomplished my goal of submitting it.

I have found a tiny snake ornament to feature, and it's purpose, you may ask?

To furnish a woman's (or man's) pierced earlobes and make them all the more attractive (gnarly).

In regards to, and in utter awe of, the master of the craft: Willard Wigan



Micro-sculptor Willard Wigan, known all around the world for his miniature sculptures that are invisible
to the naked eye, launched a new exhibition of his near-inexplicably intricate works in London's Museum Street.
Willard uses tiny homemade tools and paints with a hair plucked from a housefly's back and carves
microscopic figures from grains of rice or sand or sugar. The sculptures, which often take months to
complete, are then mounted on pin heads or needles.

Pictured is a miniature sculpture of the US President Barack Obama and his family.


[telegraph.]

- - -

a short film on his life's work and ambition:



- - -

and a parting gallery to view more of his painstaking,
unbelievable, and huge, tiny accomplishments:






Williard Wigan recently visited Prince George's Community
College to discuss his works of art, many of which fit inside
the head of a sewing needle. An exhibition of his works called
"Art in the Eye of a Needle: Micro-sculpture by Willard Wigan"
(was) on display at the Parish Gallery in Georgetown in January of 2010.

Michael Chesko built this scale model of NYC's midtown using balsa wood and a love for detail -







This scale miniature of Midtown took 2000 hours to complete. As reference, he used blueprints, old photographs, digital reproductions, and satellite images. On a good day, he'd work his way through four city blocks. The entire model is 36" x 30"... a good deal smaller than most office desks. At the 1:3200 scale, the Empire State Building Chesko's favorite skyscraper) roughly reaches the dizzying height of a Campbell's Soup can.

Sea Dave has made this wonderful, melancholic pixely game about exploring.
It really is a thing of great beauty and you should totally play it. It won the

Mixed-media artist Peter Root’s 100,000-staple-strong cityscape, “Ephemicropolis.”



Peter explains: "Stacks of staples were broken into varying sizes from
full stacks about 12cm high down to single staples. These stacks were
then stood up and arranged over a period of 40 hours."
