Takanori Aiba

Good evening everybody!

My girlfriend sent me last week a message with the words: "You should try to do the same with your hobby skills!" Maybe i will try it in the future, but at first i would like to show you what she´s talking about. Takanori Aiba is an artist from Japan. Unfortunately his homepage is down in these days, and so i would like to quote some infos about him from www.thisiscolossal.com:

The following decade he worked as an architect and finally in 2003 decided to merge the two crafts—the design of physical space and the drawing of labyrinths—into these incredibly detailed tiny worlds. Using craft paper, plastic, plaster, acrylic resin, paint and other materials Aiba constructs sprawling miniature communities that wrap around bonsai trees, lighthouses, and amongst the cliffs of nearly vertical islands. I would love to visit every single one of these places, if only I was 6 feet shorter."

Mein Blick umkreist das imaginäre Bauwerk, und schweift manchmal absichtlich zwischen den Gebäuden in den Raum. Ich sehe sie mit den Augen der Vögel oder des Windes. Der Ursprung dieser Schöpfungen sind meine ersten Erfahrungen mit der ...."

For me it´s very cool and beautiful art, but i think it is a good insparation, to build some fantastic worlds for our minis. But i will quote myself "Maybe i will try it in the future,..." :)
