Feel Big, Live Small

 

The Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures

Recreating the world in exact detail to create an illusion of reality is certainly an awesome challenge for miniature artisans and an amazing feat to behold; but it isn’t simply the technical prowess that makes miniatures fascinating. Because miniatures are small believable renditions of the world observed from an omnipotent perspective, they place a psychological hold on viewers and awaken a range of emotional responses from nostalgia to critical analysis of the world. Twelve artists explore the psychological impact of recreating the world in tiny proportion and offer viewers an opportunity to Feel Big, Live Small in this multi-media exhibition. This display includes more than twenty works of art comprised of three-dimensional miniatures as well as photographs, digital images and video created with miniature sets. Included with museum admission. Free for members.
