Miniature Urban Landscapes

Little People in the city... The other day I was watching 'Smart' when they had a feature on someone who made tiny figures and placed them in city streets and took photos which were close-up and then actual size to show them in context. Turns out the person is called Slinkachu. His blog has quite a few examples of his artwork, which could potentially form the basis of a geography homework (although I'd need to think about that a little more...) I like the idea of playing with scale... A GOOGLE IMAGE search will lead you to more... Book out in September. It has a foreword by Will Self. For more on WILL SELF, check out an interview on his walk from La Guardia airport into Manhattan airport via SPEECHIFICATION .
