The Magic Smoke

Styrene Plastic, Acrylic Paints, Watch Parts 
If you have ever plugged your power source into your ground wire then you've seen the magic smoke. After receiving a fatal jolt of energy the otherwise stark and featureless exterior of a microprocessor give a small hint to its intricate and precise inner workings. 
This miniature is my homage to the many complex and invisible processes that help to make the modern world possible.​

Abandoned Tudor House

January 2018
18" x 12" x 8" tall
Decorative sheet metal house, Sintra, Paint, Wood, flocking

I decided to spruce up a decorative metal box intended to hold candles with one of my favorite building facade designs; Tudor. I thought this would fit nicely in a fantasy setting while also still being at home in a contemporary city/town.

A detailed write up going over all the techniques for the building and the construction of this project of this can be found at my blog:


Intermodal Models

Fall 2017
18" x 12" x 8" tall (Made of small elements)
Styrene Plastic, Bass Wood, Cardboard
This project consisted of creating a miniature shipyard with two intermodal containers filled with shipping pallets and cardboard boxes. This piece was created as  a prototype and proof of concept for a larger project. All the elements were constructed to be durable so they could be handled by audience members and also dumped onto the floor.
