Otherworldly: Optical Delusions and Small Realites

Optical Delusions and Small Realities illuminates the phenomenal renaissance of interest among artists worldwide in constructing small scale, hand built depictions of artificial environments, dioramas, and alternative realities, either as sculpture or as subjects for photography and video.
The book features contemporary work by approximately 35 preeminent visual artist who have generated renewed interest in this art form; a diverse group of international practitioners, ranging from sculptors and painters to photographers and videographers.  This fully illustrated catalogue includes artist biographies, statements, and an essay by exhibition curator David McFadden, which traces dioramas and visual illusions in the history of visual arts, and a critical analysis of the works in the exhibition.
