Has any artist modeled their dreams in miniature before?
I was recently checking out the work of photographer Lori Nix when I was bonked on the noggin by a flash of inspiration. I used to be a hardcore model railroader (which I’ve been dying to get back into) and I’ve also always been a lucid dreamer, forcing myself to take extremely detailed notes of the contents and scenery of my dreams. After looking at Ms. Nix’s work, I realized that I should try and model some of the more memorable scenes from my dreams in the form of scale dioramas and then photograph and post-process them. I’ve already finished and photographed one scene, and started building a second, but I’m now finding myself wondering if anyone has ever done this before. I’m not worried about plagiarizing… many photographic artists have photographed miniature worlds before. What I am wondering is if anyone has ever done exactly what I am doing: explicitly interpreting their own dreams using three-dimensional mediums and photography? I sort of doubt that anyone has, but it would be neat to know. Help me out, Jellies!
