Imagine yourself encapsulated in a snowglobe. At first, your sight is limited to the area within your dome. As you get your bearings, however, you begin to see a world beyond the glass, and what you see is a giant peering in at you. Much to your surprise, that giant is you. How could this be? Moreover, how do you respond? Do you introduce yourself or do you cower in fear? Do you seek to entertain this colossal version of yourself, or do you seek cover?
Come see Dioramarama and jump from world to world and place to place, observe one thing pop up and another break down in front of you. So many worlds, all so fleeting. Hold a world in your hands. Be a world. Be a diety. Who is an artist and who is merely an observer? They say that voyeurism is participation, come see for yourself! This experiential performance includes visual art and performance art, static and living dioramas.
