Today the Department of Teeny-weeny Wonders shares the work of Japanese model artist Akihiro Morohoshi who, after years of making traditional model railroads, decided to switch things up by creating awesomely detailed miniature railroad dioramas atop and inside everyday objects such as cans of Pringles, matchboxes, gumball machines and electric guitars.

To make the scenes look good as a whole, Morohoshi had to pay attention to every minute details of his pieces: from the custom-made signs and vehicles, to the weathering of each object to make them look lifelike.

Visit Akihiro Morohoshi’s website to check out more of his marvelous miniature railway scenes, preferably while you have some Pringles in hand because those particular models make us hungry for chips.

【Mr.Normal】巧奪天工!餅乾罐上超微距城市

這個在餅乾罐上超小火車模型,是Akihiro Morohoshi 的作品,Akihiro Morohoshi 是一位來自日本的模型製作家,畢業於多摩藝術學院,他以精湛的技術做了許多精巧細緻的城市和造景,擅長製作鐵道模型,並以此獲得許多獎項及舉辦各大展覽。最近他將鐵道模型結合在日常生活物件上!

這些模型不只被結合在餅乾罐上,連吉他、火柴盒各種日常生活玩意兒都成了鬼斧神工的作品。

而最令人咋舌的不只這些,而是這位日本人對細節的要求之高,鐵上的繡斑、屋頂的積灰、軌道的痕跡都被一一表現了出來,彷彿這是真的有小小人在此生活的世界,只是時間被暫停在這瞬間。

不管是整體豐富度、物件結合的有趣度,亦或是對每個小物件的細緻度,都令人嘆為觀止。彷彿那些是巨大的公共藝術或是世界的地基。

小小的模型搭配了了這些東西,把吉他、火柴、餅乾都變得好巨大!

他讓這些我們平常很少注意的東西,增添了許多童趣,用魔法般的雙手,造了一座小小的城市,讓我們用想像力走進了這美好的世界。賦予了這些不起眼的盒子、包裝還有稀鬆平常的事物,全新的生命。

他用敏銳的感官、豐富的想像及靈巧的手,在這些東西上,打造了一個又一個屬於他的遊樂場,那麼你們呢?

發現屬於自己的 Playground, Enjoy being different!
