Small Worlds: Absurd Suburban Landscapes in Small-Scale

Take a quick glance at the image above and you’d be forgiven for thinking that it depicts nothing more than a boring, commonplace apartment block, perhaps the kind you pass by every day on your equally boring work commute. Take a longer look and you may come to suspect that the workers who built this drearily designed construction became confused over how exactly a balcony works (a stroll outside the balcony door will surely result in imminent death). Take a closer look and you may come to realize that the logically challenged building depicted in the image above is not a building at all, or at least not one compatible with human use.

This is in fact a small-scale model created and captured by German photographer and artist Frank Kunert. Entitled “Apartment with Balcony,” it is part of Kunert’s satirical “Small Worlds” series, in which he assembles meticulously detailed, ingeniously absurd urban environments and photographs them for our viewing pleasure. Like the rest of the project’s entries, “Apartment with Balcony” was painstakingly modelled with deco boards, plasticine and paint, and was not photographed until Kunert was certain that it was absolutely perfect; as you can see, it looks glorious. If you wish, check out the rest of the series below, which is sure to raise a smile, a giggle and a ton of admiration. [Read more…]

We’ve all seen it in movies: the good guys appear to be seconds from defeat, surrounded and outnumbered. Then, just when all hope is lost, reinforcements come over the horizon, and the bugler sounds the charge as dramatic music plays and the bad guys get a swift kick to the seat of the pants. Hell, even history, the greatest of all storytellers, is littered with stupidly awesome charges that won the day, such as the story of Colonel Joshua Chamberlain, who found himself at the command of the 20th Maine Regiment on Little Round Top during the Battle of Gettysburg, weathering repeated charges by Confederate soldiers. With ammunition supplies almost exhausted, and retreat not being an option, Chamberlain decided to take the fight to the enemy. With Bayonets. [Read more…]
