Building a Diorama

Diorama: 'a scenic representation in which sculptured figures and lifelike details are displayed usually in miniature so as to blend indistinguishably with a realistic painted background' (source)

 

For Print Media class, I built a cosy cave with chicken wire, modelling paste, paint, paint, miniature furniture and dead animals I found in my stairwell. (My stairwell is like an insect graveyard. Every other day, I find another beautiful, stiffened bug. Once finished, I took a picture of the diorama and switched to the screen printing, resulting in seven prints.
