Miniature Worlds

Tatsuya Tanaka is a master of turning everyday objects into miniature worlds that seem larger than life. He’s been doing it daily for almost a decade, and in the midst of the COVID pandemic, he’s started to integrate some all-too-familiar objects into his work.

  2. His work is fascinating – though in this case less a flight of fancy than one might hope

    • Beth, have you read The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton? I had the book for a long time, unread and waiting to be read – then I bought the DVD w/o even realising that actually I had the book already – I watched it, was fascinated, then I read the book a while later, again – you’d love it.

    • Update; I had forgotten what it was exactly about – it’s been a while. I’m not sure you’d like it too much, as it is a bit of a thriller and it wasn’t my usual fare I’d choose. I’m quite surprised now to realise that I had read the book AND seen the movie – it must have been an interesting journey….

        • Beth, maybe you do a little research – I remember having kept the book aside, so it must have been a captivating journey. And I’m NOT one to read unrealistic, cruel or scary / psycho stuff. But I admit that I must have been very charmed by the doll house treasures, as my dad, a carpenter and maker of all our children’s toys, including toy shops, doll houses, rocking horse and adjustable doll’s beds, was coming alive once more when I read that book….

  11. Why? What is the intention here?
    Sorry – I just think this adds to the attention seeking “look at me” and how I can tweet this digitally to get more attention. There is much superficiality and not so much depth in these times.

  12. THAT was one of the posts which sent me awol for days. I searched this artist, was intrigued, searched his work, wondered about his obsession of doing this miniature work (my eyes started bleeding with the strain of watching his work after a while!) – and I never commented afterwards. That is exactly what happens far too often – I WANT TO KNOW stuff – but then I get lost in it.
