Dream No Small Dreams: Terrarium-like Art

One of the most appealing elements of a terrarium is the freedom to allow you imagination to romp among a miniature landscape.  This tiny encapsulated world depends on your care and attention to thrive, and in return, becomes your own secret, if small, garden.

Artists Patrick Jacobs, Adrien Broom and Thomas Doyle tap into this human fascination with the minute in a series of miniature landscapes, some of which appear under glass much like a terrarium.  While these works don't incorporate living plants per se, the attraction is all terrarium.  The exhibit is on display as part of show titled "Dream No Small Dreams" at the Ronchini Gallery in London.

    Cute, but if I knew how to upload a photo here I'd show you my miniature world. It's a lot of work but it's tiny and it stands up to the elements. The bulk of it is MOSS.


Let's hear it!
