encapsulated within long vertical glass volumes, the miniature landscapes built by amsterdam-based designer rosa de jong form tiny scenes for the viewer to investigate and imagine. handcrafted from an eclectic mix of materials such as paper, cardboard, tree branches and moss, the small scenarios depict surreal architectural environments and structural impossibilities. a stack of buildings teeters on the edge of a tiny mound of earth that seemingly hovers in mid-air; an urban-style structure is contained within a transparent tube; a miniature paper water tower rises above a suspended patch of greenery. take a look at the series of tiny worlds titled ‘micro matter’ below and see more of de jong intricate process here
