Miniature Worlds Birthed from the Mind of Tanaka Tatsuya

Turning the mundane into something fantastic is what artist Tanaka Tatsuya has done everyday for the past 4 years. Tatsuya creates miniature worlds from common objects using miniature people to scale the environments and forming a narrative among the objects. His pieces invite the viewer to imagine objects and context at such a small scale. A good example is the staples as hurdles for a mini track and field event. Check them out and experience whole other worlds at your fingertips.
