Suspended Landscape

My on-going obsession with dioramas as an art medium is further fueled by Cathryn Barmon’s Nature is Sculpture series. Her concept was born from the challenge of designing a living space of only 600 square feet, and after a trip to Japan, she was inspired and fascinated by Japanese landscape design. I love the idea of a floating landscape that offers up peaceful & serene views not normally found looking out an urban window. The dioramas are available by order from the artist.
