Worlds Under Glass by Thomas Doyle

February 17th, 2012

Some days it feels like you’re stuck in your own bubble. From an outside perspective, this could be what it looks like. These miniature, 1/43 scale Worlds were created by artist Thomas Doyle. Here are some words from Thomas about his work:

The private intensity of moments rendered in such a small scale draws the viewer in, allowing for the intimacy one might feel peering into a museum display case or dollhouse. Though surrounded by chaos, hazard, and longing, the figures’ faces betray little emotion, inviting viewers to lose themselves in these crucibles—and in the jumble of feelings and memories they elicit.

The glass itself contains and compresses the world within it, seeming to suspend time itself—with all its accompanying anguish, fear, and bliss. By sealing the works in this fashion, I hope to distill the debris of human experience down to single, fragile moments. Like blackboxes bobbing in the flotsam, these works wait for discovery, each an indelible record of human memory.
