Dioramas by Lori Nix

Dioramas by photographer Lori Nix
“The City”, by Lori Nix. It’s just not fair to simply label her a photographer when you consider that what you’re actually looking at is an insanely detailed hand-built diorama. Each diorama takes about seven months to build and photograph, and they range from about half a metre to nearly two metres in diameter. She shoots the scenes with an 8×10 medium format camera. See more below!

  • TOASTRANDER

    wow.

  • I went to her exhibition at bau xi gallery in Toronto it is great work.

    • was it the photos or the dioramas themselves?

  • Amazing. Somehow, bringing the scale down to a diorama size gives a great sense of surrealism. Reminds me very much of Dali.

Inflatable Geometric Dome Explores the Transformative Nature of Colour

Pneuhaus1

“Fabric Prism” by art collective Pneuhaus (aka Matt Muller, Augie Lehrecke and Levi Bedall) is an interactive installation made from an inflatable, light-sensitive membrane of their own design. Constructed earlier this month as part of PVDFest 2016 in Providence, Rhode Island, the boldly coloured fabrics on the exterior of the geometric dome translate into more subtle shades inside, depending on the time and brightness of the day. More images below.
