Miniature cities on household objects

These beautiful, fanciful miniature cities built into household objects like power-strips and desk-fans are part of the graduate show at the Kyoto University of Art and Design. The artist is uncredited, but it's very lovely work.

  1. It looks great. . .but my power strips get so dusty already. . .and I’d like mine grounded please. . .

  2. I saw that and imagined a short story where tiny people build cities on anything you leave alone for too long, and the frustration it causes.

  3. That’s really great. I used to play this game all the time when I was a kid — that is, imagining that ordinary things are tiny cities, or spaceports, or fortresses. What a wonderful idea for an art project!
