Tiny Existential Figures in London
September 12, 2006 7:10 PM   Subscribe

Little People is a London street art project featuring tiny statues of people acting out the daily chores of full sized people (tourists, beggars, daydreamers, etc). Reminiscent of crash bonsai, or better yet the tiny food dwelling characters found @ minimiam.

I'll see your tiny people and life-sized objects and raise you life-sized people and tiny objects.

Neat. See also.

The food people in particular are hilarious. My fav is the the astronauts exploring the surface of a creme brule.

I'm somewhat amazed that out of all these sites, I've yet to see anyone portray angels on the head of a pin.

Astronauts, right? Or is that a hazmat team?

Kinda related: The New York Times had a photo (taken in August) of construction at Ground Zero using the tilt-shift lens technique.

Pretty cool. I've seen the food people before, and was a fan then, and still am. Reminds me of my model railroading days.

I approve, of course, but none of modern stuff can touch the miniature wood carvings at the Wallace collection, and it is killing me that I cannot find links to pictures of them
