The Diorama

Denotes a partially 3 dimensional, full sized or scale model of a landscape typically showing historical events, nature scenes or cityscapes, for the purpose of education or entertainment.

This is a concept or area of production that i have been interested in for a while now. I remember when i was in primary school and we had to make a diorama scene within a shoe box. I chose to recreate a scene from Shakespeare's "The Tempest" using tissue paper for the stormy sea.

I find myself being drawn back to this process. After years of working with digital compositing, I'm thinking that I could draw upon these skills and explore them in a more physical sense.

I want to make something in the Physical world, something hands on, something you can interact with.

I want to make a Diorama.
