Would Anyone object to me considering this diorama? Can we think of it as a bird dying in a forest?  Or maybe an anthropomorphic dive of ecstasy?

Portable Landscape by Joianne Bittle — Kickstarter

Artist Joianne Bittle is using KickStarter to fund the creation of a landscape diorama series connecting the Permian past with the present.  She’s half way to her goal of $3,500, with 29 days to go.  Head over to KickStarter to check out her project and others.  Opening date for her show, in Marfa, TX, is Ocotber 8.  She’s done work for Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, so it should be good work!

Alright, here we go.  Possibly my favorite recent diorama.  There’s this great space in Echo Park called Machine Project.  They do all sorts of cool installations and hold interesting community events.  Artists Sara Newy & Christy McCaffrey built this beautiful forest inside the main space at Machine Project.  It’s amazing how well the little space was transformed into a forest that appears much larger.  What started as a small room, became a magical and mysterious place.  Amen to a diorama you can wander around in!  Shots from MP’s Flickr

Life on Mars, as seen by an 8 year old student. Her work reminds me of Michel Gondry, except she doesn’t know who Michel Gondry is, so it just reminds me of her.

Artist and DIY celebrity Kate Pruitt, brings our attention to these phenomenal shoebox dioramas, created by “leading” artists to support a kids charity.  This one by artist Paul Hazelton, is titled Table Tornado, and is made of household dust.  He says ” I spent many hours at that dining table; drawing, chewing and imagining worlds far flung, spun somehow from some deep desire to escape a mundane existence; worlds that are still forming in the dust.”
